NEW Ramsay Park Pump Track

This pumptrack, which is a 20,000-square-foot circuit of rollers, banked turns and features, is both the largest and the first paved pumptrack in the county. It brings new cycling opportunities to users of all ages and abilities, and fills a need for easily-accessible, skill-building outdoor recreation in the Watsonville area. This project was fully funded by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC), thanks to a generous donation from a private donor, and received support from key sponsors Bell Helmets, Shelton, Inc, Sierra Azul Nursery, and Delta Bluegrass Co. Interested parties can learn more about the project on the MBOSC website here. 

The Ramsay Park Pumptrack is currently open to cyclists from sunrise to 8 p.m., seven days a week. The north side of the track features larger technical rollers, berms and jumps, while the south side of the track hosts smaller features that are more accessible to youth users or pumptrack novices. This latest centerpiece of Ramsay Park complements the existing ball fields, skatepark, picnic area, and community center to appeal to a wide range of user groups of all ages. The Ramsay Park Pumptrack brings critical outdoor recreation infrastructure to South Santa Cruz County, and offers a COVID-safe opportunity for users of all ages to get outside, build their skills and exercise together.
