The existing Prescott Pump Track is located within the Granite Creek Park. Its location makes it easily accessible to all who live in the growing Prescott metro area, and near to a diverse area of kids and families. Pump track design has evolved with new ideas for flow and progressive features which is lacking in our existing track.
The plan is to turn this conveniently accessible location into a place where families and people of all ages come to have fun. We plan to accomplish this by upgrading the current pump track. We received approval from the city to upgrade and expand the area from .18 acres to .23 acres. It will include something for riders of all abilities: a flow lane, a jump lane and a separate kid’s area.
Having this upgraded pump track at Granite Creek Park will attract more families to the area and improve the overall feel of the park.

Local volunteers will be called to help build.
The cost of for this project is estimated at $50,000 including materials, equipment rental, labor and lodging.
Funds are being raised from local contributions (GoFundMe campaign), sponsorships, and matching grants.
We welcome participation from the business community. Sponsors will be acknowledged by having their name permanently inscribed on a metal sign at the pump track based on their sponsorship level. Platinum sponsors would be at the top, followed by Gold sponsors, then Silver and last Bronze. In addition, they will all be recognized and acknowledged on our website and social media posts.
In-kind donations are also welcome. The dollar value of the donation will be assessed to determine the appropriate sponsorship level.
