About the park:
Award winning designer and builder
Wally Hollyday drew from 25
years of experience to produce an unmatched, quality facility design
dedicated to the technical
and aesthetic needs of the experienced BMX rider. Created within a 2.2-acre
detention basin that would have otherwise just been a vacant lot, 900
tons of concrete were used to create three irregularly shaped bowls,
averaging eight feet deep, primed for tricks and exciting BMX maneuvers.
Specific features included
in the park area: the side rail, the central rail, the over-vert wall,
two straight walls, and a wrap-around wall extending above the bowls.
The Basin is located on the corner of West & 6th Street (1700 E. 6th
Street) in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Flagstaff.
Dubbed as the only BMX-exclusive
concrete facility of its kind currently built in the state of Arizona,
‘The Basin” is also an inviting park facility designed with attractive
landscaping, picnic & Ramada areas, benches, and fountains

Park Closures? Occasionally
the park will experience routine closures due to weather conditions
for the safety of the local BMX freestyle bikers. The ideal
surface for quality freestyle BMX tricks is also ideal for potentially
dangerous situations under certain weather conditions.
The slightest bit
of moisture from rain, snow, hail and even fog, among other
weather conditions, can create a less-than-desirable condition
for safe and sane riding.
