The park also contains a velodrome. A velodrome is a banked track used for cycling (both training and racing).
One of only 27 velodromes in the U.S., Penrose Park was built on land donated by the City in 1962 after the Forest Park Velodrome was dismantled for Highway 40/64. Designed by Olympic Cyclist and Schwinn Bicycle Designer, Frank Burlando, Penrose Park is an all outdoor track measuring 1/5 mile and featuring a 28 degree bank.
