A new BMX Pump Track to be built at Tahmoor’s popular DNA BMX Park
Posted on: 09.08.2017
Construction will soon commence on a new BMX Pump Track at Tahmoor’s DNA BMX Park. The project involves re-shaping the existing beginner’s run of jumps to form a circuit pump track. Jointly funded by Council and the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program the Pump Track is due for completion by 30 September 2017.
User feedback and usage levels has indicated that BMX based activities have evolved since the installation of the original dirt jumps over 10 years ago and Council has enlisted the Born to Ride Freestyle Association Inc to help select a design that is both challenging and fun for our young people of today.
Mayor for Wollondilly, Judith Hannan said, “The DNA BMX Park is a hub for recreational activities and social interaction. It is important that we continue to enhance the park to meet the needs of the existing and future generations. This project has been designed to meet the needs of BMX riders and also offer new opportunities for people of all ages and experience levels to participate in BMX riding.”
The new pump track will:
- provide a transfer connection between the proposed pump track and the existing
- table-top jump line
- include rollers throughout the track
- berms along key bends
An opening event for the new Pump Track will also be held following completion of the works. Further details on the event will be provided in the coming weeks.
