LinkedIn Discussion Group: BMX Parks on City Property

April 27, 2016

Some cities are receiving pressure from BMX enthusiasts to provide space for their biking activities, with some in the BMX community taking matters into their own hands and building impromptu BMX parks on city-owned property. However, when a city discovers one of these makeshift BMX parks on its property, a decision must be made: If the agency allows the park to stay, there is the potential for the city to be liable if a park user becomes injured, but if the city destroys the park, they take away a popular youth activity and risk a public relations crisis. Members can post their comments and questions regarding this topic on the Authority’s LinkedIn discussion group page for ideas and insights into how agencies are responding to this issue.
