We have a big announcement about the Topaz Bike Park that Yvonne Mendel is championing: a bike skills park as been chosen as one amenity for Topaz Park!
We ask that you tell Victoria city council to make it a top priority. We need your help or it could be a LONG time before this dream becomes reality. Big donations for the bike park are also welcome!
This weekend, share your ideas for what you'd like to see: asphalt pump track for beginners, intermediates, experts? Nearby water, picnic tables, power for events perhaps? A biking perimeter trail around the park? Let's lead a community initiative to plant native species and restore the natural area; no more garbage!
You can share your ideas by attending the Open House at Topaz Park on Saturday, April 21, noon to 4pm. You can also fill out the online survey on the City of Victoria's Topaz Park page (link below) before April 30. Encourage your friends and family to share their ideas, too!
