Brookfield Park Bicycle Skills Area Officially Opens

Bicycling enthusiasts gathered June 12 to cut the ribbon and officially open the Brookfield Park Bicycle Skills Area located at 7417 Floyd Ave. in Springfield, Virginia.

Lee District Supervisor Rodney Lusk was joined by representatives from the Park Authority Board, sponsoring organization, the Springfield Civic Association, several bicycling organizations, representatives from two local business sponsors The Bike Lane and Advanced Auto Tech, as well as dozens of young riders and their families.

The project is the culmination of more than a year of planning, coordination and fundraising. This new installation surrounds an existing pump track and is suitable for bicyclists of all ages.
