New pump track part of recreation area in Labrador City
SPECIAL TO THE AURORA
For people who enjoy fun on wheels like bikes, scooters, skateboards and even roller blades, the latest addition to the recreation area on Booth Avenue in Labrador City is a thrilling one.
A new pump track has just been installed directly across from the skate park.
Graham Cooke, operations supervisor and skate park specialist with Canadian Ramp Company in Ontario was in Labrador City recently along with recreation department workers to assemble and install a new pump track.
What’s a pump track you ask? Think of it as a 3D track that runs a loop that has hills, turns and lots of opportunity to catch some big air, and do some impressive moves.
Cooke told The Aurora the track is made of fiberglass so it’s very durable and tough, but it’s modular and can be assembled in different configurations. It’s easy to add extra track to expand the size of it. Around the track there is sod and mulch, to help prevent injury in the case of falls or spills.
Canadian Ramp Company also installed the skate park just near the new track.
