KCCI Celebrates Leon County’s First Educational Bike Park
2813 Ridgeway Street
Tallahassee, FL 32310
Since 2007 KCCI has been improving Leon County’s economic vitality through volunteer-driven projects that help retain and attract talent. The 2020 KCCI Community Catalyst team created Leon County’s 1st educational bike park at Sabal Palm Elementary, A Community Partnership School (SPECPS). KCCI collaborated with SPECPS to re-purpose underutilized spaces to create interactive spaces that promote bicycle learning experiences for children ages 4-11. The initiative integrates with Sabal Palm’s strategic move to become a community partnership school. The KCCI volunteer Community Catalysts created an educational bike park with three zones: an educational, creative bike space that resembles real life-situations on a basketball court, an off-road experience, and a covered training area for younger students and for use on rainy or hot days.
