The new pump track at Prebbleton Domain is open and riders of all ages are now welcome to take to the asphalt.

The track, designed by Milton and Frews Trailbuilding is right next to the play centre in Toswill Road. It has been designed for - bikes, scooters, skates, roller blades, or skateboards and for users of all skill levels. The track is a continuous loop of rollers and banked corners, catering for a range of skill levels and ages, from toddlers on balance bikes through to advanced bike riders.

Construction work was completed in July, with the rain delaying the finishing touches. Lines have now been painted on the track,
with some minor landscaping still to finish off. The grass areas are closed while the grass beds in and additional seating still to
be added.

The Council Community Projects Manager Cameron Warr said it is exciting to have the pump track open.

"This is a great new asset for Prebbleton and adds to the range of activities we have across the district. We know there's been a desire from the community for more pump tracks. This adds another option to get active outdoors, with a number of community parks, bikes tracks and playgrounds developed over the past 12 months. It's been great to have an experienced bike track builder and construction company on board to build something that will cater for such a wide range of riders."
