Get Pumped for Gladstone’s First Pumptrack!

Grab your bike, scooter or skateboard and head to Memorial Park (right next to PCYC) this coming Sunday, the 18th of December to be the first to ride the largest asphalt pumptrack in Australia!

The official opening of the pumptrack will commence at 10.30am on Sunday, which couldn’t have been timed better with school holidays now in full force.  Along with giveaways, music and a free sausage sizzle there will also be pro-rider demos on display.

The project is quite close to the heart of Councillor Glenn Churchill who Chair’s the Gladstone planning and development committee and also is the Chair of the Gladstone Police-Citizens Youth Club (PCYC).

“We received over 650 positive responses from youth and families in regards to the development of the pumptrack which was overwhelming” Councillor Churchill said.

“This is another fantastic milestone reached in the development of the youth precinct on Hanson Road and there is more exciting things to come in 2017”

The track has been built for all ages and abilities and includes two seating shelters, catering for those parental spectators, listening out for the ‘watch me mum’.

This new addition to the long list of outdoor activities for kids in our region will be warmly welcomed by the community and the GN team ‘wheely’ can’t wait to try it out!
