Construction of bike pump track at Cope Park starting soon

August 21, 2020 – News

Construction of a new bike pump track at Cope Park is starting early next week, weather dependent. In partnership with the Juneau Mountain Bike Alliance (JMBA), the track will be built in the wooded area by Gold Creek incorporated within the forest. The area will be closed to the public during construction, which should take about two weeks.

CBJ contractor SJS Excavation will be doing part of the work, along with crews from CBJ Parks and Recreation COVID-19 Conservation Corps and JMBA volunteers. Please do not enter the construction zone, which will be signed and flagged. The track should not be used until completed and the construction signage is removed.

The playground, tennis courts, picnic area, bocce ball area, dog park, and parking lot at Cope Park will remain open to the public. There will be some vehicular traffic through the park for construction.
