News release issued by the City of Martensville

Today, the City of Martensville hosted the official grand opening of its new pump track. 

Construction began in July 2021 on the pump track, which is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be used by riders "pumping" or generating momentum by up and down body movements instead of pedaling or pushing. Skateboarders, inline skaters, BMX bikers and scooter riders began using the track last year in Kinsmen Park near Third Street North and Eighth Avenue North in Martensville. In July 2022, lights were added and the landscaping around the pump track was completed.

Under the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP), the Government of Saskatchewan invested $325,000 toward Martensville’s pump track project. MEEP also provided $575,000 towards other Kinsmen Park infrastructure such as outdoor rink and pathway paving and adding lights to a baseball diamond at Mocon Fields.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is proud to support these Martensville recreation projects by investing a total of $900,000 in provincial funding through MEEP. This included the new track for skateboarders, inline skaters, BMX bikers and scooter riders, along with other Kinsmen Park infrastructure, which makes Martensville an even more attractive community for families to live, work, raise a family and start a business in this new decade – and beyond,” said Martensville-Warman MLA Terry Jenson, on behalf of Saskatchewan’s Government Relations Minister Don McMorris.

“We are excited to officially open and welcome users, guests, and the public to our new pump track. It has already been a popular amenity and a growing sport that adds to the strong and diverse recreational base we have here in Martensville. This is one more reason for residents and visitors to visit Kinsmen Park,” said Martensville Mayor Kent Muench.
