Re: Harrison offroad park opens Woooohoo!

Took the kiddies to the track on the 28th. Harrison was back in school, but Ross didn't start till the 29th. So we had the place to ourselves. The kids and I have maybe been here a half a dozen times since it was initially opened to the public.





My youngest had a pretty scary crash not long after we got there, which put him on the sidelines. That didn't stop him from harassing his sister though.

Yup.

We still have the Skyteam-50 I bought brand new about 8 or 9 years ago too. THAT one has been through some spectacular crashes and has a bajillion miles on it, yet it's still going too. I had a self-proclaimed Honda Z50 expert walk up and try to buy it from me that day because he thought it was an original Honda Z50R.

Best time to check it out, is during the day while school is still in session.

Re: Harrison offroad park opens Woooohoo!

Adult track and kid track. The tracks change every time I'm there and sometimes can be in rough shape. Just think of the adult track as a trail with wide sections, that goes in a loop.

I don't recall ever being there on a weekend, but my kids have played softball down the road and you can often hear a fair amount of them running at a time. I've not been there since August. The kid track has always been pretty mild, and whenever we have encountered some pro-class riders, they've always been respectful of slower kids.
