- HOW TO GO
BMX in Northbrook Skatepark, Chicago, Illinois USA
If you enjoy BMX riding in skateparks, you will flip for this multi sport area, the Techny Park and Fields in Northbrook Skatepark. The skatepark is located in Northbrook, a suburb of Chicago. The park was built by the Northbrook Park District after teenagers of the area asked for it. With bowls, ramps, grinding ledges and rails, the 22000 ft²/2044 m² skatepark welcomes every ambitious BMX rider of all levels.
Most of the skateparks use wood as it is cheaper, but Northbrook is all concrete and large enough to host beginners and experienced bikers. Other features are a street course, a quarter pipe, rails and curb. In the center of the park lies a huge bowl that is connected to another bowl with some vert. Around the center bowls are the street courses.
The skatepark opens daily from sunrise until 10 pm and has lights for night use, so if you wish to ride your favorite BMX bike after the sun goes down, you can totally do it. Bear in mind that the park is unsupervised, so mind your personal things and safety. It is a great park that you will definitely love, if you decide to visit it.
