Chicago is the seat of Cook County, Illinois, USA. It is the third most populous city in the US and the most populous city in both the American Midwest and Illinois. Nicknamed as The Second City or Windy City, Chicago is situated on the southeastern shores of Lake Michigan, in the northeastern Illinois.
If you enjoy dirt and riding a BMX bike, there is a place in Chicago that will surprise you with the quality of dirt jumps. The Garden Chicago Dirt Jump is a bike park devoted to those who live for fun in the dirt. It is a set of dirt jumps, ideally located in a park in the city of Chicago.
A pump track with multiple routes and 3 jump lines are waiting for you to overcome them. The pump track consists of a step-up, a pump section, 6 tabletop jumps and berms to connect them all together. All level riders will enjoy this track.
The medium line has tables for the first two hits. You begin your adventure at the start box, pump the roller before the two tables, a berm on the right, a double roller, then step up to 180 berm, step up and two more doubles later you are done!
Next is the main line, which is the most popular, as it has the most jumps and exists longer than the others. The route is pretty much the same as the medium line. Start with the first double and then head right for two more doubles, hip to 180 berm right, then step up and two more doubles later you are done. Because the line is super boosty and located in the middle of the other lines, it is the best for photo opportunities and spectators.
Finally the expert line is the biggest and newest in The Garden. It goes like this: you begin at the start box and hit the 2 set-up jumps. Then hip left off the first double, hit the double/step up and continue another double to 180 berm left and two more doubles in the end. This line is still a work in progress, but it’s gonna be huge!!!
Besides all these amazing features that are a magnet to all BMX Dirt riders, other amenities include many events, free parking, restrooms and picnic tables. It is a full day, BMX Dirt Jumping destination in the middle of Chicago!!!!
