Bicycle Playground at Silver Lake Park

840 - 7th Street NE (Located between the swimming pool and skate park)

Access to safe environments, designed to encourage physical activity and promote health in a community, was the impetus behind the first-in-the-state Bicycle Playground in Rochester.

The Rochester Bicycle Playground is a miniature street pattern specially designed to help children (and adults) learn basic bike handling and braking skills, become familiar with roadway marking and signs, and learn skills related to operating a bicycle in and adjacent to traffic.

The Bicycle Playground will provide parents and cycling instructor’s safe places to teach children and adults the basics of riding a bicycle. This purpose-built place is designed for teaching road safety awareness modeled on the League Cycling Instructor curriculum.

Support for the Bicycle Playground provided by the Minnesota Statewide Health Improvement Partnership Program with Olmsted County Public Health, Rochester Parks & Recreation, and Rochester Public Works.
