The Terrain Parks feature pipes, rails, jumps, tabletops, hips, rollers and obstacles of all sorts. We've even got a timed boardercross course. What's even better, is that it's all serviced by a lift. South Street Park, the newest addition to the parks, located above Valley Run, is packed with small to medium jib features with some gap on to rails and boxes along with a couple jumps. The Burton Progression Park was designed and built for entry-level park users. The features in the Burton Progression Park include ride-on boxes and rails, along with rollers and small jumps. Located below Upper Bobby's, Psyched Park is a medium park designed for the intermediate park user looking to progress his or her riding to the next level.
