The Bike Yard at Welcome Park is an amazing recreational opportunity for local youth and families in the heart of the Carillon neighborhood. This new amenity will provide a place for residents and visitors alike to enjoy the feeling of freedom and adventure on their bicycles. It will be a draw for riders of all ages and abilities from across the Midwest and will continue to enhance the quality of life, image, and vibrancy of the City of Dayton.
The Dayton Bike Yard will include multiple tracks and trails intentionally designed to provide a range of opportunities for all ages and abilities ranging from a casual walk around the multi-use path to honing skills and getting a little “air time” on the jump lines. Whether you are a seasoned rider or just taking off your training wheels, the Dayton Bike Yard will provide a full progression of experiences to support every rider in improving their skills and becoming more confident. Many of these features will be the first of their kind in the region and will set this park apart from the few in the Midwest.
The Dayton Bike Yard is currently under construction. The park is expected to be complete by the end of November 2022 and a grand opening celebration will be held in the spring of 2023. Sponsorship opportunities are still available, visit this page for more information on how to donate.
