    Track Skate (213.25m*) Pad

This flat oval 'track' measures 213.25m* and has (FIRS) regulation radius corners. By comparison, an international regulation 'banked' track measures 200m. The only workable scenario at this location requires an additional 6.5m length within each straightaway. The track is located at 14800 Prairie Road NW & 146th Lane NW, in Andover, MN.

*a typical 200m track is 25 laps = 5k  :  our track is 23.445 laps = 5k
..in time, we may add more traditional track racing distances to the mix.

There is a playground facility, swings, football/soccer field, paved trail system, picnic area, b-ball court, porta-pottie, etc. These make for a comfortable family destination, while one or all participate in skating drills and training.

The "5k Road" is an out-and-back; from the Track start line, out to N on Prairie Rd, to a 180 turn at Crosstown Blvd, returning S on Prairie - back to the start line. There are zero cross-roads on the route.
