TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local bike park is helping kids explore the great outdoors.
Saturday, Griffin Bike Park hosted an event for Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.
Families helped kids test out their skills as part of the nationwide celebration. They also took some time to walk around and check out all the bike park has to offer.
Griffin Bike Park will stay busy next week with Vigo County Salutes. It's a week dedicated to military service and sacrifice. One of the events will be a groundbreaking event for the warrior trail. It's a trail specifically made for disabled veterans to enjoy.
