Sustainability Statistics

North Houston BMX Bike Park

North Houston Bike Park encompasses more than 22 acres, centrally located between Downtown Houston, The Woodlands, and Kingwood, Texas. The Greater Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority hired OJB to design this one-of-a-kind, world-class bike park following the completion of the ten-acre North Houston Skate Park which lies directly to the north. The creation of this area has already provided a benefit to the local community and impacted development in the neighboring region.

The focus for the North Houston Bike Park is to provide something for everybody, whether it’s novice or expert riders, visitors, or spectators. Programming for the park will include a BMX track, a welcome center, 25,000 SF of concrete bike bowls, a performance pavilion with large event lawn, an urban riding plaza, large and small pump tracks, a tot track, a dirt jumps track, and off-road trails with break-out areas for various skill work.

Promenades run from the north to the south, framing the event lawn and creating a variety of pedestrian gathering spaces. Bike activity happens to the east and west of the promenades ensuring an active experience for all visitors.

OJB has incorporated sustainable elements into the space-efficient design. The starting ramp sits atop the park’s 2,500-SF Welcome Center. Another unique element is the pedestrian bridge which is situated on top of rideable planters and allows visitors to traverse the bike bowls. Visitors can take advantage of this distinctive vantage point with birds-eye views of the riders below as well as tree-top sightlines extending to the south end of the park. Designed in a flood plain, the 100% permeable parking lot allows for stormwater storage.

North Houston Bike Park will host the Union Cyclist International (UCI) 2020 BMX World Championships.
