The new pump track in action

Keen cyclists and skaters are wheeling up a storm at the new pump track in Bridgewater Parkland. As part of Stage 2 of the park’s Master Plan, community consultation saw the pump track take the win over a skate park. Designed for all-ages use, the pump track is suitable for bikes, skateboards, roller skates and scooters.

The track was designed and constructed by Velosolutions, a leading pump track and mountain bike trail company who have constructed over 600 pump tracks globally.

It is an asphalt surfaced track with a compacted gravel base for increased stability and design life. The overall cost of the project was approximately $165,000, made possible through the Improving the Playing Field grant program, as well as Boral’s generous $10,000 contribution through heavily discounted material and transport costs on the gravel base material.

The track was completed late October and is already getting community use, proving to be a popular addition to Bridgewater Parkland.
