Quary Park Mountain Bike Park is located in Footscray, on a hill next to the Maribyrnong river. It consist of one ascent trail, three downhill trails (one featuring jumps), a skills area and a pump track.
The park was officially opened on Saturday, October 12th 2019 (see http://bikewest.org/giant-bikewest-fest/)
BikeWest`s Role in the Project
BikeWest submitted a proposal for the creation of a mountain bike park in in response to the community consultation for the Quarry Park master plan.
After the proposal had been included in the plan, we organised meetings between the local riding community and Dirt Art, who built the park. BikeWest had regular meetings with the project manager and builders to ensure the trails met our expectations.
We strapped a camera to a bird. Here’s the result.
MTB trails don’t just happen over night.
But one night, it rained. A lot. And then did that for a week.
