The Superdrome Management Group is building a family-friendly area on the east section of the velodrome property, envisioning an inviting environment for residents of Frisco and surrounding communities to fully enjoy a family night out at track cycling events.
Currently, spectators have been limited to bleacher seating only and families with children try to balance keeping them entertained and safe while comfortably watching the races. Clearing the eastern pad of bleachers allows for the addition of picnic tables, benches, movable shade awnings and a fenced-in play area for the children. Families will then have the opportunity to bring a picnic dinner and relax and visit with friends.
In the long term, the Superdrome hopes to add a larger playground area and a thorough awning system to increase the family-friendly atmosphere and in hopes that residents of local neighborhoods will feel welcome riding their bicycles or walking the trails to the Superdrome for a family outing.
Those of us who volunteer, support and participate at the Superdrome would like to have more Frisco residents interested and involved in the velodrome and what it has to offer as a recreational sport or entertainment venue. The new High School program is set to kick off in March 2010, with Liberty High School scheduled as the first school to utilize the velodrome for physical education classes five days a week from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
