Yangebup Bicycle Pump Track

Construction of the bicycle pump track at Perena Rocchi Reserve, on the corner of Osprey Drive and Moorhen Drive, will start before May 2018 and is expected to be completed by July 2018.

The Yangebup Progress Association received a State Government Local Projects Local Jobs grant for the bicycle pump track from the State Government and the funds have been transferred to the City of Cockburn to manage.

Trees will be retained at the Yangebup site on the corner of Osprey and Moorhen Drives where the looping 150m track has the support of Yangebup Progress Association as it will enhance the area by encouraging use of the park, along with the nearby basketball ring and playground.

Pump tracks are commonly made of clay. They have a circuit of banked turns and features designed to be ridden by riders "pumping" - creating momentum by up and down body movements. A similar track established at Dixon Park in Hamilton Hill has proven popular with the community since it opened last July.

The Pump Track layout for Yangebup is available to view in the related documents section below.

South Lake Bicycle Pump Track

Trees will also be retained at the South Lake track which will be near the Ottey Neighbourhood and Family Centre.
