Wagga’s first pump track has been given an enthusiastic thumbs up by users.
The $80,000 track, in Tolland’s Emblen Park, was officially opened on Wednesday, with dozens of young cyclists, scooter riders – and the occasional skateboarder – taking a trip around the track.
“The pump track provides a different recreational space for Wagga youth, and even adults, to test out their skills on,” Wagga City Council’s Ben Creighton said.
The track features a continuous figure-eight course and is made from compacted earth with an asphalt surface. At its highest point the track stands about twometres tall.
The track site also features a landscaped rock fence, picnic setting and four solar-powered motion detection lights which will be installed in the coming months.
