We have volunteered over 25 years of manual labor to transform the South side of Duncan Park into an internationally recognized collection of bicycle jumps and trails. Our group’s contributions and goals for Duncan Park provide a positive influence in the community that encourages healthy outdoor activities, diversity, and park stewardship.
