The North Houston Bike Park officially broke ground with a formal ceremony featuring local dignitaries. As program managers for the Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority (GRA), Jones|Carter will manage the overall construction of the bike park. Representing JC at the groundbreaking in early December were Martin Murdock, Kent Allred, Grant Detro, Erin Williford, and CEO/President, Bob Aylward. The event featured speeches from former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Councilman Jerry Davis, Chairman Elvin Franklin, and GRA Executive Director Sally Bradford. BMX bikers, the future end-users of the new park, also attended in support of the project. Located along Green Bayou, the 20-acre North Houston Bike Park is the next phase in GRA’s beautification program that includes the now-completed North Houston Skate Park and Dylan Park. The park will feature a nationally sanctioned BMX supercross track and bowls, mountain bike trails, pump tracks, and other features for all skill levels. The project is slated for completion in October, 2017.
