Parking info and map 

Okotoks BMX is pleased to offer plenty of parking within walking distance (2 blocks) of the track.

Okotoks BMX parking lot – Reserved parking

The main Okotoks BMX parking lot is reserved for handicap, volunteers and commissaires. In order to park in the main lot, a parking pass must be displayed on the front dash of the vehicle. Parking passes can be obtained from the parking attendants.

Drop-off / pick-up will also be available through the main lot.

Seaman Stadium parking lot – General parking

The Seaman Stadium parking lot is the main parking lot for the 2018 grands event and is located kitty-corner from the Okotoks BMX track. Parking attendants will be available to direct traffic and to provide direction to the track if needed.

Overflow parking

Overflow parking is available southeast of the Seaman Stadium parking lot in the Riverside Park parking lot.

No Parking

There are a number of other businesses located around the Okotoks BMX track. Okotoks BMX asks for everyone’s help in respecting the other businesses in the area by not parking in lots which are not indicated as permitted parking areas. The no parking areas located directly north (across North Railway street) of the track.

West of the track is the Okotoks eco-center. The eco-center has graciously offered to leave their gates open on the Sunday only to use for the 2018 Grands parking. Saturday the eco-center is open and requests that there not be any event parking on the Saturday.

What to Expect for the 2018 BMX Grands Awards Ceremony Evening


The awards ceremony will be held after all racing is finished at 7pm at the Okotoks Centennial Centre, 204 Community Way, Okotoks, AB. Doors will open at 630 to allow everyone to find a seat. There is ample parking around the building. ***Please be mindful of the surrounding businesses as to not block their patrons from accessing them, there will be an overflow option, watch for volunteers to help direct you there if necessary.***

  • If racing runs late, we will push the ceremony back a half hour. For example, if races finish at 630, the awards ceremony will begin at 730. We make all best efforts to keep everyone informed of a delayed start to the ceremony through postings on our various media.

  • In an effort to keep the ceremony flowing smoothly, Alberta BMX has decided that we will only be doing podiums for the top 3 racers in each category

  • If you place 4-24, you are still encouraged to attend the event as this is a great opportunity for you to cheer on your fellow competitors but it will also be your only opportunity to obtain your shiny new AB plate!

  • We will have a ‘red carpet’ area in the event centre where you will be able to take pictures against the Alberta BMX backdrop as well as the Okotoks BMX backdrop. These backdrops will also be available the following day for those wishing to avoid lineups.

  • Lastly, if award distribution goes smoothly and on time, we will take whatever time is remaining to have a dance party until 10pm! Polish up your best dance moves because this will be loads of fun and a great opportunity for parents to really embarrass their children. Lol!

**Please note that our Club is only responsible to make arrangements to host the ceremony, it is Alberta BMX who is in charge of the actual event and distribution of trophies and plates.**

 

  • *stay tuned for more information*
