Mt. Airy Skills Park and Flow Trail

CORA is partnering with the Cincinnati Parks Foundation to fund the Mount Airy Skills Park construction. Progressive Bike Ramps, a leader in creating exciting inclusive courses for all to learn and build cycling skills, completed the design for the skills park in Nov. 2021.

The Cincinnati Park Board has appropriated funds for half of the project, including a comfort station with flush toilets and sinks, and an ADA compliant concrete pathway along the skills area.

The central location of Mount Airy is easily accessible from the whole city, and its urban site provides new opportunities for an underserved and diverse community

Utilizing 31 mountain bikes and a Riding for Focus Grant from the Outride Foundation, Nagel Middle School Wellness Teacher Brian Weaver started a successful program with students biking on school grounds during Academic Flex Time. Building on this program and with Mr. Weaver's guidance, Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance developed a plan for an on-campus skills area open to the public outside of school hours.

This facility would allow students to challenge themselves while learning the skills to navigate the woods, rocks, and varying terrain. In addition, the Riding for Focus program provides a big step toward leading youth into a potentially lifelong sport that will maintain health as well as mental well-being and focus. Having these types of amenities in the region also helps with talent retention for their working parents and guardians. Employees often cite that considering locations with resources like this nearby is a meaningful perk of working in the area.
