UPDATE: Murfreesboro Parks Continue Planning of Proposed Skatepark

Oct 25, 2022 at 10:59 am by WGNS News

Plans for the Murfreesboro Parks and Rec. Department to build a Skatepark are moving forward… That was parks director Nate Williams. A public input meeting was held earlier this month at the MOAB Bike Shop and two more public input meetings are expected in the near future. Parks and Rec Officials plan to build concrete bowls and ramps for skaters of all ages... The future skatepark will be built in Old Fort Park in the location of where pavilions 1 and 2 once stood.  

If the budget allows, the parks aim to build a pump track next to the skatepark. The pump track could be used by BMX and Scooter riders of all ages.  


A pump-track consists of a circular loop with rollers or hills, mixed with berms. When the bicycle rider rides correctly on the track, no pedaling or minimum pedaling is required to maintain momentum. If on a scooter, there would be minimal kicking to propel the scooter forward and movement would involve the rider pumping their arms as they follow the rolling hills. No timeline on when the skatepark will be built has been announced, but WGNS will continue to follow the progress of this story.
