Monier Road Park BMX Track in Darra Now Open

The Monier Road Park BMX Track in Darra, Brisbane’s second of such kind of facility, has been opened to the public.

The Monier Road Park BMX Track officially opened to the public on 4 May 2019 with activities that included two hours of free BMX coaching for new riders. The modern competition-grade facility, one of Australia’s largest BMX tracks, is free to use. It also caters to riders of all skill level, from the young and beginners to the more advanced riders, allowing them to practice their tricks or just enjoy recreational riding.

The BMX facility features an asphalted track with entry level, intermediate, and advanced runs. There are two shade shelters, pathways as well as landscaping including trees, groundcovers and turf. Riders also have access to toilet facilities, drinking fountains, and rubbish bins.

Throughout the design phase, Council has consulted with residents and local community to ensure that the project meets the needs of the users and the broader community. Construction of Monier Road Park BMX Track commenced around September 2018 after the final detail concept design was made public.

The entire development involved site remediation works, installation of new drainage, BMX track, shade shelters, pathway connections, and installation of signage and drinking fountain.

The Darra BMX facility is located in the north-eastern section, close to the Monier Road Park’s existing playground, and can be accessed via Monier Road.
