On February 24, 2009, the Turlock City Council unanimously approved using $15,000 of “City Parks/School Parks Improvements” funds toward an estimated $25,000 Turlock BMX Bike Park. The bike park will be a football field sized BMX dirt jump course located at the Christoffersen + Walnut storm basin, fenced in and landscaped.
The Turlock Lions Club, Kiwanis Club of Turlock, Turlock Businesses, and community members have donated approximately $8,000 of the $10,000 in donations required by the Turlock City Council before the approved Turlock BMX Bike Park can be constructed.
Supportive interest from the Turlock Lions Club and Kiwanis Club of Turlock began almost two years ago and their gracious donations (Lions $2,500 and Kiwanis $1,000) were collected shortly after the project was approved. No other commitments (except Ron Hillberg’s) or donations were collected after the two initial contributions.
Every since July when people around the community started asking about the bike park fundraising progress, committed donations and other $100.000 donations have now been collected.
Now that the below donations have been collected, the community still needs to raise $2,000 more. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Download the City of Turlock BMX Bike Park donation form here for details on plaque donor recognition details.
