About Chehalem Valley BMX
1201 S. Blaine St., Newberg, OR
Chehalem Valley BMX is located inside Ewing Young Park, alongside the Skate Park and Dog Park.
At about the same time that Chehalem Skatepark was being built, teens were asking CPRD for a BMX track. Since the skatepark was already being planned for Ewing Young Park, building a bike track at the same site made sense. Originally, a small track was built with the help of community volunteers and Zack & Lisa Hebert who operate Bear Tracks BMX. Since the site was so popular, CPRD applied for and won a $5,000 grant to build a nationally sanctioned course, from the National Recreation and Park Association. A professional track builder was brought in, and after five days at moving thousands of tons of dirt, the track was completed. The track now hosts local and regional races as well as recreational riders and racers.
