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.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    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.
