City officials cutting ribbon at Dayton Bike Yard

Two years after the ribbon cutting at the Bicycle Playground, the Dayton Bike Yard is ready for show time! The grand opening event on May 20, 2023, will highlight the unique features of the bike park while celebrating the neighboring communities.

Attendees are invited to bring their bikes and hit the trails. Need a bike? No problem. Five Rivers MetroParks will have their fleet of bikes (appropriate for kiddos and adults) on site to rent.
