Launceston’s Riverbend Park will soon feature the city’s first pump track for people on bikes, scooters and skateboards and using rollerblades.

The new $500,000 track will be located in the 900 square metre area of land between the city’s Charles Street Bridge and the¬†Boathouse Centre.

Launceston Mayor Matthew Garwood said the council will start advertising for design and construction tenders this weekend and hopes construction will get underway in early 2024 for a targeted completion date in July.

“The pump track’s central location is close to the CBD, has nearby access to toilets and car parks, and is already a major recreational hub for Launceston and the whole State,” he said.

“The addition of a pump track to Riverbend Park will be an awesome asset for the city, and one that is going to provide a heap fun and physical activity for people of all ages, for years to come.”

“This location has been selected following extensive investigations by officers who have examined a number of potential locations across the municipality and is just the first of what may be a few investments of this kind around the city and suburbs.”
