The Scottsdale Bike Park project originated from a community petition in 2019 and has evolved over time following further discussions with the community. The project aims to continue working alongside local young people and families to ensure that the final plans are in line with community need.

The Bike Park concept is for a staged facility for beginners and experienced riders alike to learn and develop their skills, abilities and confidence levels within a designated safe environment. It aims to cater for the development of a wider range of skill sets and aims to include a range of features designed to develop various skills including bike handling, balancing, jumping and turning.

A community consultation period was undertaken in September 2023 with the results outlined below.

Following on from the community consultation period and in response to concerns raised by the community in regards to the location staff have undertaken a review of the project. With no other site having the footprint availability as Northeast Park the project scope has been reviewed as to what may be achievable at other locations across Scottsdale.

We are now pleased to advise that Stage One – the skills development area will be making itself at home at the Children’s Reserve (Anzac Park). We are currently in the design and quotation phase for building of a learn to ride style track that will compliment and extend the existing concrete path surrounding the playground area. The facility will target younger riders and those learning to ride so they can develop their skills in a safe environment.

Stage Two of the project will be to build a pump/jump style track. Further funding will be required in order to complete this stage with a location yet to be confirmed.

Thank you to all those who provided feedback!
