9th Street Austin, Texas - Duncan
Park BMX Trails
For the past 20 years, the South side of Duncan
Park has been used as a BMX bicycle Jumping/Trail spot. It has been
hand built by the local riders with very minimal involvement from
the City of Austin and absolutely zero compensation.
Street; as it is called by the locals, is an ongoing community
cooperative work project. A completely self organized and self directed
movement. Non-profit and non-discriminatory. An internationally
recognized BMX monument.
Street has helped shape Austin into the BMX mecca it is today. It
has a very positive financial and economic impact on the local
community. Created from free labor by good samaritans. 9th Street
creates a unique, hand-built, BMX paradise for all ages to enjoy.
Keeping Austin Weird.
The 9th Street Locals have moved thousands
of tons of earth, shovel by shovel. 20 years ago the park was flat
ground. Now it is dotted with hundreds of dirt mounds sculpted to
perfect form. Countless hard working people call 9th Street home.
It has been built with pride and back breaking manual labor.
As an organization known as; "The 9th St. Locals",
we work with the City of Austin and Austin Parks.org to the benefit
of the park. If you get a chance to visit, please take a moment
watch how things work. Be friendly, talk to a local rider.
Please pick up your trash and have fun.
