Logan City Council is pleased to announce that the construction of a pump track at Waller Park has been completed.

City Lifestyle and Customer Services Chairperson Councillor Steve Swenson said the new pump track, which is used by the Centenary Plains BMX Club, is available for the broader community to enjoy.

“The new pump track provides a hub for alternative sports, as the existing BMX track is adjacent to a popular skate park,” Cr Swenson said.

“It will enable children to start riding at a younger age, and allow them to develop skills to progress to the main BMX track.”

Logan City Deputy Mayor and Division 8 Councillor Cherie Dalley said the pump track is also expected to attract riders from all over South East Queensland.

“Prior to the pump track at Waller Park, there was no facility with a bitumen pump track in the City of Logan,” Cr Dalley said.

“Our new pump track provides a skills development space for competitive and elite riders in Logan and beyond.”

The pump track is part of the Waller Park BMX Enhancements Project, which also includes a new access road and a clubhouse, made possible by Logan City Council’s $575,000 funding commitment, a $300,000 Get Playing Plus Grant from the Queensland Government, and $25,000 raised by the Centenary Plains BMX Club.
