A Tokoroa mountain bike park is quickly stealing the limelight from Rotorua’s Redwood Forest. 

Cougar Park, the South Waikato town’s 68 hectare mountain bike park, has become the place to go for Waikato mountain bikers.

The Tokoroa Mountain Bike Club, which operates the park within a pine plantation off Mossop and Newell Rd, is now set to seek $1 million in funding to further invest towards its transformation into a world class facility over five years.
