About the project
The new BMX facility caters for all users ranging from young children and beginners to professional riders. It includes freestyle jumps for more advanced riders and tracks for recreational riding. The facility is free to use and is close to the existing playground at Monier Road Park.
Council engaged a specialist design team with BMX experience to design the facility and following community consultation, the final detailed concept design was released in mid-August 2018.
Prior to construction of the BMX facility, Council completed remediation works to the north-eastern section of the former landfill site at Monier Road Park. Minimal vegetation removal works were required which is part of Council’s commitment to providing a sustainable solution to an increasing community demand for a greater range of recreational activities.
The facility includes:
- An asphalt BMX track with entry level, intermediate and advanced runs
- Shade shelters, drinking fountains and amenities block
- Lighting, until 9pm each evening.
