Quarry Park

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.

Here's a quick birds-eye view of the progress on the tracks to tide you over until the official opening. Huge thanks to Sam Jones, Year 12 Media student at Footscray City College, for his drone expertise.

Sam Jones the superstar Year 12 student from FCC did this for us!


MTB trails don’t just happen over night.

But one night, it rained. A lot. And then did that for a week.
