Oshawa looking for volunteers to help maintain BMX Bike Park


Published August 15, 2022 at 9:08 am

Oshawa’s first sanctioned BMX and Bike Park is already open for riders and the City is looking for 20 volunteers who are interested in donating their time and muscles to help maintain it.

Maintenance is essential in order to keep the track in good repair and riders safe, Volunteering is a great way to develop useful skills and also earn volunteer hours.

Volunteers must:

  • be at least 14 years of age unless accompanied by a parent or guardian;
  • attend a mandatory training clinic; and,
  • sign and submit a waiver before participating in a mandatory training clinic and scheduled workday events.

The mandatory training clinic takes place Tuesday, August 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the BMX Bike Park located on the northeast side of Thornton Road, north of Rossland Road.

Scheduled workday events will take place at the Bike Park once a month, for a duration of two hours. City staff will be on hand for each of the scheduled events to assist and provide guidance. Tools and equipment (wheelbarrows, shovels, brooms, watering cans etc.) will be supplied by the City.

Volunteers must register in advance of the mandatory training clinic by visiting https://forms.oshawa.ca/Community-Services/Operations-Services/Community-Volunteer-Participation-Waiver and completing the Waiver by selecting BMX Volunteer Stewardship Program.

Registration is limited to 20 volunteers, however additional space may open up as needed. The first 20 volunteers registered will be contacted by the City to confirm their registration.
