Though not large, it is a good size and not your standard concrete skateboard affair.  BMX and Free-Riders will have a bit of fun here since it was designed for that purpose under IMBA guidelines.

This ride location “Mount Trashmore” in Kitchener was a former landfill site and is gradually being transformed into a suitable place to ride.

This area is built with soil and wooden structures on the side of a grassy large hill. Not a lot here but there are a few challenges for every level.

Mountain Bike riders can practice their skills and do a few loops for fun. A skateboard pad is just beside the base in the park if you want to play on that too.

One can race with friends; four at a time on the course. There is a small pump track for beginners and kids.

The free-ride course has a few skinnies and drops with boulder gardens, a teeter-totter and wall rides.

The jump park has two runs with 3 lines for different levels over a series of dirt jumps and rollers.

One thing has me wondering if this spot works for the BMX crowd. Being built on a hill face, you sure do go down fast BUT there would be a lot of climbing back up.

BMX bike do not have low gears for a climb so are they happy with walking?

Helmets are mandatory, kids 6-12 need supervision, no pets.
