Project Status

Infrastructure & Buildings


Start: Mid 2018 Finish: Late 2024



Malabar Park is home of the Cockburn BMX Club. The site is accessible to both club members and the wider community.

The City began planning a redevelopment in 2018 to address ageing infrastructure. The need for this redevelopment grew following the Covid-19 pandemic, when the facilities fell into disrepair.

The Cockburn BMX Club have continued to engage their members, with a view to return to full activities at the site after the redevelopment.

At the August 2023 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council accepted a $6.88M tender from MG Group (Menchetti Consolidated Pty Ltd) to take on this project.

Work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2024.

Funding includes a $100,000 grant from the State Government’s Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund for floodlighting. Cockburn BMX Club will provide a $20,000 contribution upon the project’s completion.

The redeveloped Malabar Park will become home to 2023 Volunteer WA Community Organisation of the Year - Friends of the Community Inc. who are local charitable organisation selling food at events and reinvesting 100% of its profits back into the community. 

What will the new facility include?

  • A Union Cyclist Internationale (UCI) BMX racing track that has the ability to host national level events
  • A new 5 metre start ramp for training and racing
  • Rationalising the existing infrastructure on site
  • New multi-purpose facility that includes areas for Cockburn BMX and Friends of the Community Inc.
  • Formalising car parking
  • ​Creating a space for the wider community to access that includes a pump track, playground, public toilet and BBQ area.
These upgrades will allow the facility to host national-level BMX competitions and events.

Next Steps

The City will finalise contracts with MG Group shortly. Handover of the site to commence works is expected to occur later in the year.
