Bulldozed! Updated!

UPDATE: It has been determined that ATCO, as part of their work on a pipeline beside Bow Bottom Trail, smoothed out the piles of clay fill on the Skills Park site. This is okay, as they have started placing loads of high-quality fill on the site. The new fill is actually better than the old fill, so…

We didn’t hear about the work due to a management change at FCPP. It’s all sorted out now.


On Saturday, April 23, the piles of clay fill at the Fish Creek Skills Park site were bulldozed flat by somebody. We don’t know who did it, or why. We’re waiting on a reply from Fish Creek Provincial Park, and we’ll update you when we find out more information.

    Now everything has to start from square one?

      We’ll definitely need some more fill, but it’s not a 100% loss. Since there was so much laid down, we can probably scrape up enough to do the beginner pump track and maybe part of the intermediate one.

    That’s really unfortunate; there are construction crews there working on a utilities line, maybe it was an accident? What is the status of the Bike Park now, are well all still waiting for final plan approval? It’s a real shame that bureaucracy has impeded a project that would be such a positive asset to the community!

      With no disrespect to construction crews, it’s pretty unusual for them to do extra work accidentally. 😉 I’m sure we’ll have a better idea of what happened once we hear back from Fish Creek PP management.

      What is the bike park’s status? Let’s just say that there has been a positive development. 🙂 Again, just waiting to hear from the fine folks at Fish Creek.
