BMX & RC Racing Track

If you are searching for a safe, family-oriented BMX racing track, you can find it at Chehaw. The Friends of Chehaw Conservation Society and the USA BMX worked together to build this racing site for motocross enthusiast. Chehaw's BMX track now features an adjacent pump track for those new to the sport to practice, or for experts to hone their skills. The public can ride anytime with a bike and helmet. If you have a USA BMX membership, you can participate in sanctioned races.

The new RC Track at Chehaw is located next to the BMX track. It offers both an off road race track and a dirt oval track. Volunteer organization, Chehaw RC, originally built and currently maintains the track. The track is open to the public during Park hours and newcomers are encouraged to come and check out this exciting sport. Organized races are held throughout the month and guests travel from around the southeast to race.

Disc Golf

Disc Golf at Chehaw Park in Albany, GA

Included in your Park admission is access to the Joshua W. Franklin Memorial Disc Golf Course. This 18 hole disc golf course, with a par 54, was opened in 2008 by friends and family of the Franklin and Griner families. The course has become a favorite among regional players. 

Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc or Frisbee. The trees, shrubs, and terrain changes located in and around the fairways provide challenging obstacles for the golfer. Discs are available for sale at the Ticket Booth and Gift Shop.

Disc Golf Tournament October 20-21.
