An example of a pumptrack at Camp Walden, NY

According to the WCB report to Thursday’s Council meeting: “Parks officers have suggested that a modular pumptrack would provide a one of a kind drawcard to Waikanae Park for users of bikes, skateboards and scooters.  The modular pumptrack system is designed by experts, can form a configuration to suit site, budget and community and is suitable for all ages. As these pumptracks are modular they are relocatable which provides flexibility as to where the track can be set up as well as the option of moving to a different location in the future.”

The likely cost suggested is in the $40,000 — $50,000 range and installation could happen around March next year.
