Consultation has now closed.

In June 2020, Council consulted the community to understand the demand for a new mountain bike/BMX facility at Yarrunga Reserve.

We received 147 responses with 91% of participants supporting bike facilities at the Reserve. We asked a number of questions to understand what type of features and elements respondents wanted to see. Here is a summary of what they told us were most important:

With the feedback received, we have developed a concept plan for Yarrunga Reserve that includes a new mountain bike/BMX trail and incorporates additional improvements to the reserve, such as:

  • Upgrading and widening pathways
  • Desilting works
  • Bridge re-construction over wetlands
  • Resurfacing tennis and basketball courts
  • New pathway near tennis court area

Help us design your new bike trail

Our concept plan for a new mountain bike/BMX trail is an example of what might be possible, however we're calling on local bike jump users and bike enthusiasts to help our designer and project team build a trail that meets their needs. Work with us, share your experience and insights and let's design this together!

There are some key factors you need to take into consideration when thinking about the design:

  • The trail at Yarrunga Reserve needs to cater for beginners and intermediate bike users. If you're an advanced bike user, that's ok - we still want you involved and to hear what your needs are.
  • Table top jumps can be up to 1 metre in height (hip high on an average adult).
  • Beginner jumps can be approximately 300-400mm high (knee high on an average adult).
  • The location of the trail within the reserve has already been chosen to ensure minimal impacts to vegetation areas and other reserve users.
  • The overall area of the trail will be about the size of two full tennis courts - so get creative with those loops!
