1. Torguson Park, North Bend
With Mount Si as the backdrop, Torguson Park in North Bend is stunningly beautiful. It is worth a visit, with bikes or without. This park offers a play set, sports fields, a skate park (currently being renovated) and the BMX pump track. The pump track is a great size and from the sideline, parents have a view of the whole course — making it easy to keep an eye on your little rider. Bikers of all ages were riding the track when we were there, even adults! There is also a miniature track which is perfect for the 4 and younger crowd.
The details: Torguson Park is located just east of downtown North Bend. If you are coming from the West, the main entrance to the park is a left off of East North Bend Way. The sign is a little hidden so the turn is easy to miss. The pump track is located on the west side of the park. There is a paved path to it that takes you past the skate park and baseball fields. If you are coming just for the biking, I saw a lot of parents park in a different lot near Les Schwab, which is directly outside of the pump track for easy access.
