The City of Menifee on Wednesday broke ground on the Gale Webb Kids-R-#1 Action Sports Park. When completed in the fall, the state-of-the-art facility will be the largest bike park in Southern California.
Located on the corner of Evans Road and Craig Avenue, the six-acre park will feature bike trails with more than 30 obstacles for different skill levels, a bicycle playground, and a 22,000 square foot pump track.
The park will also feature a permanent restroom building and a gravel parking lot. An asphalt parking lot will be installed during phase two improvements.
The park is named for Gale Webb, a long-time Menifee resident who inspires and encourages youth through her nonprofit organization, Kids-R-#1. Gale has overcome tremendous adversities with poise and persistence.
Following a parachute accident, doctors told her that she would never walk again. Gale proved them wrong and has gone on to make a grand impact in the action sports industry and has been an inspirational mentor to kids of all ages.
“It’s only fitting that the largest bike park in Southern California be named after someone so foundational to the popularity of extreme sports,” Community Services Director Jonathan Nicks said. “We hope this new park will inspire the next generation of action sport athletes.”
