A Bike Park For All Seasons

NW Indoor MTB Parks is actively working with Snohomish County Parks and Recreation to create an indoor/outdoor bike park at Wellington Hills County Park in Woodinville, WA. Riders will be charged an entry fee to support operations of the park and be treated to features including:

  • Airbag for Aerials
  • Bike and Foot-Style Trampolines
  • Pump Tracks
  • Skills Area
  • Terrain Park
  • Toddler Playground
  • Street/Skate area
  • Food/Concessions
  • Lounge/Party Area
  • Retail/Repair
  • Bike Rentals
  • Multi-Purpose & Programmable Room

We will host cyclocross and MTB events, youth and adult skills clinics, and a variety of other cycling related events and activities. The outdoor bike park will be free to the public and designed and built by the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. Wellington Hills Bike Park will be a fun and family oriented bike park with something for everyone to enjoy. A bike park for all seasons!

ADVOCACY ALERT: Contact Snohomish County Council members to show your support for the bike park and attend the next public meeting on Tuesday, June 26th, at the Brightwater Education Center in Woodinville from 7-9 pm. Find out more and how to contact County Council members via the link below to the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s website.

  1. Mountain biking and climbing dont mix. Great idea on the Bike Park but leave the climbing out.

    • I tend to agree. I think the space is better used for additional MTB or BMX features. Although, there was that day I road my bike down to the indoor climbing gym.

      Perhaps the climbing is on the outside of the building, partially enclosed, or in its own little climbing zone of the park. Something like Marymore’s climbing area, only better, and dry all year. I like it, and think that would get a lot of of use. Just like an indoor bike park will!

      As the entire park project proceeds through the public permitting process, the indoor MTB facility and outdoor biking trails remain in the Park Master Plan. Patience and persistence remain critical.
