According to the tender documents, the bike park would be in the order of 2,500 square meters in size. To be located alongside the existing skateboard park, the proposed circuit will feature dirt jumps and an asphalt pump track, suitable for both novice and serious riders.
“It would be a win for everyone in our community; local riders would have a safe, all- ages location suitable for all levels of experience to practice,” said CEO Martin Gill. “It would better protect fragile vegetation in other areas previously used for riding.”
The proposal to date is based on community consultation, including an insight design workshop with riders. The final design process would begin once a consultant is appointed,” Mr Gill said.
The BoQ is yet to secure either Federal or State government funding support towards the project’s estimated cost of more than $520,000.
“The design will assist in future bids for external funding to progress construction of the bike park,” Mr Gill said.
