Lipe Art Park would become the home to a new biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, and scooter pump track.

Members of the volunteer group Pump Track SYR, are working towards finalizing the building plans of Syracuse’s first ever outdoor pump track, and hope to start construction next year.

The pump track would be installed in Lipe Art Park on West Fayette Street. The track can be enjoyed by people of all ages, and it will facilitate biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, and scooter use due to the unique nature of its design.

The Syracuse City Fire Department and the City Meditation Crew remember Sept. 11, 2001, with separate acts of live art, silence and a peaceful reading of the Quran.

Two events commemorating the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks Saturday took culturally different approaches, but both strove for the same result; silent remembrance and inner peace.

Artists, students and volunteers combine forces to create art, vegetation out of a neglected space in downtown Syracuse.

A collection of Syracuse University students and local volunteers gathered in Lipe Art Park in April to clean up and prepare the area for gardening and art projects taking place there. Brendan Rose, a masters degree student in architecture at SU, used volunteers to mix cement for an art installation he is creating for the city. The installation is located in the center of the park and will serve as both a graffiti wall and shade canopy for the residents.
