BMX and skate upgrades for Alma Treloar Reserve, Cockatoo

Published: 3 May 2019

Cardinia Shire Council is currently seeking community feedback on the design of Alma Treloar Reserve’s BMX pump track and skate park upgrades.

The reserve is set to receive a $350,000 upgrade this year, which will include a new BMX pump track, as well as improvements to the existing skate park.  

Council hopes that the development of the new BMX track will encourage participation in positive and healthy activities.

Community consultation for the design of the BMX pump track and skate park will be held on Wednesday 22 May, with a drop in session from 3.30pm to 5.30pm and a workshop/community meeting from 6pm to 8pm.

The sessions will be held at the Allan Bailey Hall, Alma Treloar Reserve, Cockatoo.

In November 2018, council adopted the Alma Treloar Masterplan, which included extensive engagement with the local community.  It was clear to council that the installation of a BMX track and the enhancement of the skate area were high priorities for many community members.

Upgrades to the skate park are expected to commence from July 2019, with completion of the skate and BMX pump track completed by the end of October 2019.
