In 2014/15 the City received a proposal from the Cockburn BMX Club to upgrade the facilities at Malabar Park to an ‘international’ standard. This proposal included concept designs for a new track, clubroom building, start ramp, gym area, offices and lighting.

Given the points listed below, the City proposed in its Draft 15 Year Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Plan that the site be redeveloped.

  • The club’s commitment to develop a formal proposal
  • The condition of the infrastructure on site
  • The fact that BMX is an emerging sport, now listed as an Olympic sport
  • The popularity with the City’s pump tracks.

In order to develop an external funding application to the state government, the City developed concept plans and a cost estimate for the redevelopment of the site, with the vision identified to date including:

  • Developing a Union Cyclist Internationale (UCI) BMX racing track that has the ability to host national level events.
  • A new start ramp for training and racing
  • Rationalising the infrastructure on site and constructing a new multi-purpose community sporting facility
  • Formalising car parking
  • Creating a space for the wider community that includes a pump track and park area.

Unfortunately the City did not receive a successful outcome for the external funding application. However, the City is committed to delivering this project and is continuing down the path of the development of detail designs with a view to commence construction in mid-2020 under a total anticipated cost of $2.45M.
