Community Spotlight: Port Angeles Pump Track
Pump Up the Fun at the new Port Angeles Pump Track
This summer, a brand-new Port Angeles Pump Track opened at the Erickson Playfield. This community project three years in the making culminated in a 14,442 sq. ft. pump track, the largest in the Pacific Northwest and the first in the USA to feature an adaptive track.
The ADA accessible design means the course can be enjoyed by all ages with all types of wheels, from bikes and roller blades to kick scooters and wheelchairs. With the new pump track located alongside the recently updated Dream Playground, Erickson Playfield has established itself as a go-to destination for fun in Port Angeles.

Building as a Community
“This pump track project shows how much we can accomplish working together as a community,” said Matt Deines, President and CEO of First Fed. “First Fed has served the Port Angeles community since we were founded here in 1923. We are excited to celebrate our centennial at Field Hall next year.”
“First Fed is a true community partner,” added Tucker. “You can tell they are engaged and have an active interest in discussing projects. There have been so many times First Fed has been able to step in to fill a gap and get us across the finish line through volunteer hours and donations.”
