Daytona Beach opened its first municipal skate and bmx park on Saturday (Nov. 7) at Bethune Point Park.  The $800,000 facility at 101 Bellevue Ave. will offer 35,000 square feet of street obstacles, ramps, a bowl, quarter pipe and a “street clam,” according to city officials.

The park will be open from 7:30am to 9:30pm seven days a week.  All BMX riders will have to wear a helmet and have park pegs.

The facility was constructed by a Jacksonville firm specializing in skateboard parks and designed with the help of a California-based company known for designing courses for several X-Games competitions, officials said.  More from the News Journal

(Editor’s Note: Having grown up in Daytona, this isn’t the first skate park…Stone’s Edge was, but it was privately owned and has been outta biz for a long, long time, and I don’t recall BMX being allowed.)

I love how the little kid is the only one wearing a helmet. And why would you require pegs for the BMX guys? Makes no sense to me.

The park requires BMX riders to use park pegs (if they use pegs). Park pegs are different than flatland freestyle pegs. Park pegs are smoother and wont damage the copings and rails. Some pegs used for flatland are textured for traction.
