Welcome to the Premier Health Atrium Medical Center Bike Park

Designed and built with the motivation to provide a cool place for kids, families, and adults to ride and advance their skills together.  We offer big mountain fun (on a former landfill) in the heart of the Midwest.  Come check it out!

The 95-acre park is owned and operated by the City of Lebanon Parks Department, and it is conveniently located in Lebanon, Ohio just off Bypass 48 and I-71 near the Countryside YMCA.  The new recreational facility is free and open to community members and visitors; with the capacity to host local and regional cycling events.

The Big Picture

Why A Bike Park in Lebanon?

Public demand for bicycling facilities is growing and the development of community bike parks has advanced rapidly in the last few years.  The 2013 Ohio Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan identifies trails as the primary recreational outlet in Southwest Ohio.  The bicycling industry is proven to have a significant economic impact at the national and local level, as can be seen with the impact that the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail has in the area.  Along with paved trails, the demand for off-road bicycling facilities is increasing as these types of facilities draw interest from both the youth and adult population. 

We believe this bike park fulfills a need for a riding destination of this type and caliber in the region.

History & Funding

It all started when the Lebanon Parks Board members were discussing what to do with a retired landfill lot.  Ideas for soccer or baseball fields were tossed around, but Lebanon resident and Park Board member, Jeff Napier, suggested building some bike trails instead!  After several conversations, meetings, and City Council meetings, the Lebanon Parks Board was given approval to move forward with the bike park plan in 2015.

In 2016, the City of Lebanon secured a Recreational Trail Program grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and funding from the State Capital Budget to partially fund the park.  This was just the boost needed to help propel the project forward.

Innovative Dirt Solutions began construction of the bike park in the summer of 2017 and opened in May of 2018. 

In 2019, the City of Lebanon received a Clean Ohio Trails Fund grant from ODNR to purchase an additional 55 acres of wooded property directly adjacent to the existing park.  The plan is to build an additional 4 to 5 more miles of mountain bike trails in the spring of 2022!
