PETAL, Miss. – A new bike park is coming to the Pine Belt. Construction for the park along the Leaf River is expected to begin in September.

The new trail will run near Chain Park on Eighth Street.

It will include terrain for mountain bikes, cyclo-cross and a BMX pump track.

The plan is to leave as many trees around the area as possible.

Officials say an archery range is also a possible feature.

Valerie Wilson with the Petal Chamber of Commerce says, “This is going to give our people just the opportunity, and the atmosphere to get out and enjoy the outdoors and fond some recreation that does not cost money.”
