We are currently proposing Kingfisher Oval as the location for the pump track. If positive feedback is received we will look to construct the pump track near the car park on Illawarra Crescent South.
The design advertised is a draft only. Once the location has been confirmed we will have a specialist design consultant undertake a detailed design process with interested community members.
Community consultation was completed late last year regarding the location of the pump track at Enderby Park in Ballajura. Feedback from the community was strongly advised against this location. Due to the nature of Kingfisher Oval and the number of activities already performed there, the City believes this would be a far better option. Properties are not as close to the oval and the park is already well used by the community.
The construction of the track is anticipated to occur within the 2023/24 financial year, subject to the community feedback and budget approval process.
A pump track is similar to a BMX track but is designed with a soft material that enables riders to 'pump' through the track in a continuous movement maintaining momentum.
