About the Engagement
From Wednesday 9 November to Monday 5 December, Council sought feedback from community members to help guide the design of the proposed Bike Park at the Bannockburn Skate Park. Feedback provided will directly influence the design of the Bike Park.
Following extensive consultation with the community, Council has developed a concept design of the proposed bike park at the Bannockburn Skate Park, with community members invited to provide commentary on the proposed design.
Residents were invited to have their say on what they would like to see as part of the design at a community design workshop and community survey which were open to the public in November 2022.
Features included in the concept design that were identified as important to users of the bike park and the broader community include separate tracks for riders with different skill levels, shaded rest areas, seating, car parking, connecting paths, a bike repair station and drinking fountain.
The concept design features three different tracks designed to challenge riders of all skills levels including a beginners skill track, an intermediate race style asphalt pump track to cater to both bmx/mtb racers and recreational riders, and an advanced jump line featuring a wooden deck drop off start point and wallride extension.
How You Can Be Involved
Community members are invited to provide commentary on the proposed design.
The concept design is on public exhibition from Wednesday 22 March to Wednesday 12 April, 2023.
What Happens Next
With a community supported design, Council can begin to advocate at a State and Federal government level for funding to deliver the proposed bike park.
