Dianella BMX Facility now open

09 August 2021

Dianella Regional Open Space is now home to the newest BMX facility in the City of Stirling, with the track now complete and open to the public.

Located at the northern corner of the reserve at the corner of Alexander Drive and Light Street, the first two stages of the $630,000 BMX facility include:

  • A new pump track, viewing space and related infrastructure including shelter, drink fountains and bicycle racks
  • A new mountain bike skills trail.

The project was informed by community consultation in 2018/19, approved by Council in July 2020 and construction started in March 2021.

The skills trail is built from compacted limestone, including elements such as rock climbs, balance beams, drop offs and rollovers. The alignment of the trail takes advantage of the shade provided by the existing trees while minimising impact on existing plants. 

The facility provides a new and unique opportunity for people of all ages to test their skills and develop new skills.

We expect that local kids will enjoy the track and trail given the increased interest in BMX following the debut of BMX freestyle  at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

The City will continue to seek funding opportunities to deliver the third and final stage of the project (jump lines) to enhance the BMX facility’s offerings for the community.

For best carpark access, use the Dianella Regional Open Space carpark entrance at the roundabout intersecting Light Street and Edison Way and follow the pathway northwest to the BMX facility.

Since 2009, participation in wheel-based activities such as bike riding, skateboarding and scootering has grown for both girls and boys and boasts high participation rates compared to organised sports such as soccer, football and swimming.

Recognising this trend, the City developed the Skate and BMX Facility Strategy to meet the current and future needs of the community. The strategy, which was guided by community consultation and professional advice, was endorsed by Council in 2013 seeking to address the limited skate and BMX facilities that were provided in the City at the time.

Set among the beautiful parkland and established community facilities, Dianella Regional Open Space was one of many sites identified to deliver these facilities as part of an interconnected network that aims to create a diverse range of choice for the whole community.
