There are some exciting developments around the Hurstville area for bike riders with a proposed plan for a BMX and mountain bike track within Georges River.
Georges River Council is looking to provide a location for a dedicated mountain /BMX track that is specifically designed for the ultimate bike riding experience.
The feasibility study to examine the suitability of the track was unanimously supported at this month’s Council meeting, with hopes of providing a safe and suitable space for bike riders in the community.
Council’s Open Space, Recreation and Community Facilities Strategy identifies mountain biking as an emerging sport with rising popularity.
To meet the needs of the community, Council is looking to provide a location for a dedicated mountain /BMX track that is specifically designed for the ultimate bike riding experience.
Georges River Councillor, Sandy Grekas proposed the idea at the latest Council meeting and has seen the increasing demand within the community for a dedicated track.
“Building a dedicated BMX track will give kids a place to go and will protect bushland like Oatley Park from damage, from illegal tracks,” said Councillor Grekas.
“This is a rare win-win, where both sides of the issue can agree that a dedicated facility is desperately needed.”
