Organization: City of Redmond, WA
Type: Bike Park
Our organization's $10,000 grant helped the City of Redmond build the Redmond Bike Park. The city has forged strong partnerships with the bicycling community—including the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, the Cascade Bicycle Club, and local bicycle shops and suppliers—to design and build this park. Roughly 2,450 mountain bikers live within 2 miles of the facility, which is easily accessible by bike from several local schools and serve as a great destination for the Seattle Trips for Kids chapter. Our grant helped the city leverage additional funding from other organizations and foundations.
