Bike Recreation within Ann Arbor Parks
Bandemer Bike Park
Bandemer Park features a dirt bike course for beginners and experts alike. Constructed in 2009, the course challenges bikers with a series of jumps and moguls of varying size. Grab your bike and catch some air or find a place on a nearby bench and enjoy the show. The dirt bike course is free to use and is open during daylight hours. View the course map here.
During the summer of 2021, Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation is looking to gather feedback and input on the Bandemer dirt bike course. Please take a moment to provide input: 2021 Bandemer Bike Park Survey.
Volunteer Work Days
During the summer of 2021, there are volunteer efforts to rebuild some of the jumps and add some features. GIVE 365 has partnered with bike enthusiasts to promote and facilitate volunteer opportunities. Upcoming work days will be posted here and at the bike park.

Please be advised the bike park will be closed during work days while volunteers rebuild eroded parts of the course. Thank you for your patience and understanding. To register to volunteer, sign up here.
