Another feature the park is a bicycle safety component focusing on teaching young cyclists, ages 5 to 14, bicycle safety, but everyone will benefit from going through the program. Bicycle safety stations are located throughout the park to offer a self-paced bicycle safety clinic. The stations feature bike safety inspections and safety information about the rules of the road.
