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 heard from children, young people, parents, and the wider community who use our parks.

We have developed some initial ideas tthat are being presented to Council, including:

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

The Community Consultation closed on 1 January 2021 and you can now read our Community Engagement Report here along with a snapshot of the findings.

Potential sites in Moonee Valley

4 months

We have started initial investigations into some possible sites for these sorts of activities. All sites are not guaranteed, and will require further investigation. 

Be mindful that our parks are for everybody and we will need to consult with the broader community about these locations to ensure there is no unacceptable impact on surrounding residents and other park users. 

We want to know what you think about the suggested sites (shown in pink), as well as if you have any other ideas.  

On the map drag the colour pins (found on the left hand panel) to any site and make comment:


  • GREEN PIN - Good site for BMX/MTB you would like Council to investigate further. State whether it's good for BMX or MTB (or both), and why.   
  • ORANGE PIN - Good site for other recreational activities you would like Council to investigate further. Comment on why it is a good site and for what activity. 
  • RED PIN - This site won't work well. Be sure to state why that is.   
  • BLUE PIN - I have another idea. Be sure to include comments and photos of your ideas.


PINK areas - Sites suggested by Council for comment
PURPLE areas - 'No Go' sites. These sites have reasons that make them inappropriate for these activities.  
RED area - site still under investigation. 





CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
