The city wants to establish its first mountain bike park, even though people have opposed establishing the obstacle course in Carlington Park.

The proposed partnership with the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association has been floated in the community and, according to a vote organized by the community association, most people are fine with an off-road course on the hill. All the obstacles, like jumps, would be created from the natural environment in the park and added in phases.
