We visited one weekday afternoon not long ago and had the area to ourselves. I imagine it could get more crowded on a pretty weekend day. But even still, the space is large enough to comfortably accommodate a small crowd (remember to ride in the designated direction!).pump track at George Poston Park, which is paved. I like the one at Colonel Frances Beatty because it's on the dirt in the woods and somewhat less technical. And, we can take a spin on the other trails, visit the pond or play on the playground (here's a park map) if we get tired of riding in circles.
Colonel Frances Beatty Park is huge and has lots of amenities. You'll find the pump track next to the tennis court parking lot. Whether you're a biker or not, this park is a fun place to spend some time playing outdoors. And the pump track is an especially exciting feature for folks who like to ride.
How to get there:
Colonel Frances Beatty Park is located at 4330 Weddington Rd, Matthews, NC 28105. The pump track is located next to the tennis court parking lot.
