West Milford Family Pump Track
Dave Van Wart, Jay Huggins, Jeff Mergler: firstname.lastname@example.org
The West Milford Family Pump Track is currently open 7 days a week, 8am to 4:45pm. Unfortunately we are restricted by the hours that the recycling center is open. However, a few exceptions to this closing time exist: when other team sports are using other fields, or the animal shelter is open late on Wednesday nights, the gates may be open. However, don't let yourself get locked in: be mindful that if you see the teams and coaches exit the field, you may be asked to leave. Please exit the PT complex when instructed to do so.
Grand Opening Celebration
The Grand Opening occurred on 21 October 2012 in perfect fall weather and and was a bona-fide hoot! Attended by local politicians and township administrators as well as 300 riders, the grand opening exceeded all expectations of the organizers and we hope the attendees. Here's a video that one of our local volunteers, Quinton Johnson (14), put together for us to record the day:
Thank you to our sponsors, Trek, Giant, Shimano and Sean Rice Masonry, Town Cycle, and our hard working volunteers, for making this track a reality.
The West Milford Family Pump Track is a collaboration between: the West Milford Economic Development Committee, JORBA, and Team Town Cycle.
After 6 weeks of construction in August and September 2012, the major construction is over and beautification is in progress. Grass is being planted for soil conservation and rain gardens are being installed with trees shrubs, grasses and perennials.
