NORTH PLATTE, NE - 308 BMX came to be in 2016 and had some mementom in North Platte to build a BMX facility that would host local, state and national events, then came 2020 and those plans came to a hault.

Now jump to 2022. The City of North Platte approached 308 BMX with an alternative location that would better suit the needs of the organization as well as utilize some under used city property. The 5 acre plot that currently is home to the Happy Hound dog retreat will be the new home of 308 BMX and the community pump track. The City will work on relocating the dog park to a portion of Cody Park across the road.
