Informal and impromptu bike skills features have been springing up throughout the City of Toronto’s natural areas including Marie Curtis Park putting undue pressure on the City’s natural environments. As a result thinc design was commissioned by the City of Toronto to aid in developing a bike skills park Master Plan for Marie Curtis.

The bike skills park was designed to respect and preserve the natural heritage of the site, while providing an exciting and challenging facility focused on skills progression so that riders of all abilities can enjoy the park.

Working with a sustainable trails expert and bike skills park designer Daniel Scott, the project’s scope of work included site inventory and analysis, public consultation, concept development, selection and configuration of skills features, master planning and a detailed cost estimate broken into an appropriate phasing strategy for future implementation.
