Cornwall is a great place to raise a family! A small town with access to great programs like hockey teams, community classes at the rec centre and lots of fun outdoor space, countless parents have decided to raise their children in Cornwall!
Of course, if you live outside of Cornwall, that means there are plenty of reasons to plan a family trip here! In fact, we recently opened just one more great reason to visit!
Located in Guindon Park, The Cornwall BMX Park is a dirt track expertly designed for BMX Racing!
If you’re not familiar with BMX, here’s a primer – “BMX” stands for “Bicycle Motocross” (the ‘X’ is a “cross,” you see) and it was all the rage in the 80s. It’s a pulse-pounding race over a dirt track with plenty of hills and obstacles that requires fitness, precision, and courage!
BMX is a great sport for kids – it gets them outside and getting in shape, and it offers a friendly, competitive atmosphere to learn how to grow! With the right protective gear, it’s also quite safe – they’ll DEFINITELY take a few spills, but that’s part of the fun!
This new track is owned and operated by the Cornwall BMX club, and it’s one of the hottest activities around for older kids and teens!
What’s more, if you have a budding BMX racer in your family, they can try to qualify for the provincial championships in Cornwall on August 10-12. Saturday's race will be open to all riders who hold a valid BMX Canada or USABMX membership and the entire event will be free for spectators!
If you’re taking your family, or an aspiring BMX biker, to Cornwall, then you’ll want to book your family vacay at the Ramada Cornwall. Our spacious rooms will accommodate the whole family, and our indoor pool and hot tub are the perfect way to relax in the evening!
