Calabazas Park jumps

Average Rating:    (3.87 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 30

Lots of jumps. That is it. No trails. A lot of jumps built for and by bmxers. Go during a weekday before school gets out. Good place for people who race dual slalom and downhill to get in some serious jumping. Most of the jumps are more in the extreme games type.

Summary:
This place rocks. Little kids and old men share the fun while cheering for each other to go faster and bigger. Park is well maintained although th ecity is taking it over 4/1/2013 so we will see if they maintain it as well as the contractor. Bottom line if you want to improve your power and handling this is a great spot to do it. I gave it a 3 on aerobic and technical simply because it is as hard as you make. And most people simply won't push themselves that hard. If you hammer it you will be gassed in no time at all!

Recommended Route:
The same way everyone else is going dummy!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There aren't any!

Summary:
I was talking to my friend (who works with the city of San Jose in the parks and rec dept) he informed me that he just got the clabasas project handed to him today( sep 8 2005). He says they are going to go look at the jumps currently set up in the sj arena for this bike show in town (talk to the builders get tips, talk to safety guys etc....) then they are going to go survey the calabasas site. The city lawyers are looking into jump heights and what can be done to improve safety. Sounds like calabasas will rise again!

Summary:
Its fenced off...i hear someguy broke his neck there and they shut it down I also hear the neighbors say the land isnt beeing used like they would like it to be used...previously the city had demolished it and denied doing it. Like a bulldoser would just rollup to the park for fun? I think the new city officals just dont want it there even given all its history.

Recommended Route:
cut the fence down and ride if you dare...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
prospect's 'hidden valley' but they fenced that too :(
