BMX, Mountain biking and other recreation activities in Moonee Valley



Over the last few months Council and community have noticed a rise in makeshift dirt jumps and bike tracks in many parks, which has increased since the lock downs in Melbourne. In response to this Council is exploring opportunities for BMX, Mountain bike tracks (MTB) and other recreational activities for young people in our parks.

We would like to hear from children, young people, parents, and the wider community who use our parks.

We have developed some initial ideas that we would like your feedback on, including:

  • Pop-Up Pump Track
  • Permanent or Semi-permanent BMX/MTB track
  • Other recreation activities such as bouldering walls or ninja warrior course etc.

We would like to hear your thoughts about these activities and suggested locations, as well as your own ideas. Please note that all ideas would require further investigation and are subject to Council endorsement and funding.


Ways to participate:

  1. Fill in the below survey
  2. Add to our interactive map, adding your thoughts on the suggested locations, as well as any other ideas.
  3. Attend an online youth session, delving into the BMX/MTB track opportunity further. Date: Wednesday 2 December at 4.30pm - 5.30pm, on zoom. Session is for young people aged between 12-25. Registration and details: https://bit.ly/youngpeopleoutdoors


The community engagement opens on 18 November through till 16 December.

  • In response to the unplanned dirt jumps around the municipality, we want to hear your ideas for how we can improve recreational opportunities for all young people in Moonee Valley.

    All options suggested by Council and by the community will require further investigation. Furthermore, some sites are not owned by Council, and would require approval from other Authorities and land owners. 

    The suggested sites and activities are not guaranteed to be implemented, but we would like your input and ideas to help inform future planning of our parks.
