On Tuesday, June 5th, the Jones Center in Springdale broke ground for the Runway Bike Park. The park will offer a world-class pump track, a skills development course, and a strider course. Crafton Tull is providing design services including upgraded subsurface drainage to reduce maintenance and allow for ridability even after significant rain events.
