The Gold Coast’s first asphalt pump track to be built at Pizzey Park
Calling all skater boys and girls! If you love to spend your spare time rolling around on some wheels, this next piece of information will have you gliding with glee. The City of Gold Coast has unveiled plans for the city’s first asphalt pump track to be built at Pizzey Park in Miami.
A $1.7-million asphalt pump track covering an area of 4500-m2 is coming to Pizzey Park in Miami, and you could say we’re more than just a little excited. The track – which is designed for all experience levels – will cater to bikes, scooters, skateboards, and inline skates. “This new and exciting addition to Pizzey Park’s amenities will enhance the existing world-class and hugely popular skate park which we opened last year,” Mayor Tom Tate said. “The pump track will be a welcome addition for the 10,000-plus residents and visitors who use the park each week.”
The track is being designed by Queensland-based company World Trail and is made up of a sequence of undulating rhythm sections, made into a loop. Instead of pedalling, riders can progress through the course by sustaining momentum by ‘pumping’ the rises and falls of the track. Adventurers can expect to roll around 2000-m2 of rideable surface incorporating rollers, double jumps, berms and wall rides. Construction of the Pizzey Park asphalt pump track is set to kick off in September and will be completed by early 2024, giving you plenty of time to nab some new skates.
