The skate park is located in an active sporting area of West Albury with surrounding sporting ovals with training lights, change rooms, public toilets and a multi-purpose sports court.
Springdale Heights Pump Track
Young people in Springdale Heights are ‘pumped’ at the thought of an exciting development taking shape in local parkland.
AlburyCity’s Wagirra team is constructing a bike track consisting of a series of bumps that challenge bike riders to generate speed by ‘pumping’ their bikes through the bumps.
Designed by landscape designers Playce from Melbourne, the track is being built at the Gordon Street Reserve and is jointly funded by Albury City and Family and Community Services.
It came about after AlburyCity conducted park partIES with local residents to discuss their hopes for the park and a place to ride emerged as a popular choice.
Other works taking place in the park include picnic facilities, soccer goals and tree planting.
The pump track is expected to be open to riders on Friday 30th March.
