Please sign our petition for the preservation and municipal support of the BMX trails in Duncan Park Austin, Texas.

For the past 25 years, the South side of Duncan Park has been used as a BMX bicycle Jumping/Trail spot. It has been hand built by the local riders with very minimal involvement from the City of Austin and absolutely zero compensation.


9th Street; as it is called by the locals, is an ongoing community cooperative work project. A completely self organized and self directed movement. Non-profit and non-discriminatory. An internationally recognized BMX monument.


9th Street has helped shape Austin into the BMX mecca it is today. It has a very positive financial and economic impact on the local community. Created from free labor by good samaritans. 9th Street creates a unique, hand-built, BMX paradise for all ages to enjoy. Keeping Austin Weird.


The 9th Street Locals have moved thousands of tons of earth, shovel by shovel. 25 years ago the park was flat ground. Now it is dotted with hundreds of dirt mounds sculpted to perfect form. Countless hard working people call 9th Street home. It has been built with pride and back breaking manual labor.


As an organization known as; "The 9th St. Locals", we work with the City of Austin and Austin Parks.org to the benefit of the park. If you get a chance to visit, please take a moment watch how things work. Be friendly, talk to a local rider. Please pick up your trash and have fun.
