on the 1100 m2 site, a 920 m2 track was implanted onto a smoothed reinforced concrete base. the circuit consists of 14 obstacles that were built using custom-made metal structures, which were covered with a layer of smooth galvanized sheet metal. two layers of phenolic resin were then also applied to increase the surface durability due to the function and inclement weather. all the obstacles also have a latex exterior paint finish with galvanized metal protection at transitions and inflection points.

the park provides a space suitable for training athletes at olympic level due to the characteristics it encompasses. the circuit presents different lines, all of high difficulty, and the height of the ramps range from 2.10 to 5.20 meters. the BMX park is equipped with a jumpbox, quarters of different heights and radii, a spine, spinebox and wallride wall.
