The City of Menifee is excited to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Gale Webb Action Sports Park. This commemoration will be held on Saturday, November 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the park (26533 Craig Ave. Menifee, CA 92584).
The Gale Webb Action Sports Park is the largest bike park of its kind in Southern California. The six-acre park includes a 22,000-square-foot pump track, three jump lines of varying skill levels, and over 30 unique obstacles. Monthly volunteer dig sessions are held on the first Saturday of every month to help keep the park in pristine condition.
In celebration of the Gale Webb Action Sports Park’s one-year anniversary, the City of Menifee will be hosting an extended celebration that will take the place of the November dig session. The event will be filled with exciting demonstrations, open ride sessions, food vendors, music, and more! A quarterly bike raffle will also be held for those who volunteered for the monthly dig sessions.
The park is named after Gale Webb, a long-time Menifee resident who inspires and encourages youth through her nonprofit organization, Kids-R-#1. Gale has made a tremendous impact in the action sports park industry for her willingness to keep pushing forward through unprecedented personal tragedies and inspiring children of all ages. She is an inductee of both the Skateboarding Hall of Fame and the BMX Hall of Fame.
“This premier biking destination has been an amazing addition to Menifee and has attracted visitors from all across the region,” said District 2 Councilmember Ricky Estrada. “It’s the perfect tribute to Gale Webb who has been a mentor to so many and continues to provide encouragement to the kids throughout our community.”
The Gale Webb Action Sports Park made its grand opening back in Fall 2022, hosting several prominent action sports icons including Vans Vice President Steve Van Doren, Eddie Fiola, Pat Casey, Bella Hammond, Andy Buckworth, and Dylan Stark.
