The first round of community consultation concluded with support for the location of a junior bike skills track at Millet Park. Based on these findings held in 2021, the City of Stirling proposes to install a junior bike skills track and beginners skate facility at Millet Park, Innaloo.

The designs have been developed to cater for children up to the age of 12.

FAQs

What is a bike skills path?

Bicycle Skills Tracks are cycle pathways that are primarily designed for younger children generally of the age 12 and under who are learning to ride or for children who want a "road" riding experience without the risks of cycling on roads. Such skills tracks are a way for children to learn basic cycling rules of the road in a safe and fun environment and are able to accommodate both bicycles and scooters in an inclusive setting.

When will the new facilities be built?

The Junior Bike Skills Track has been funded by the WA Government as part of the election commitment grant program.  As such, the works will be scheduled for construction during the 2022/23 financial year. 

The incidental skate elements have been listed for budget consideration by Council for 2022/23. Pending Council adoption of the capital works budget we will schedule the works accordingly.

What are the benefits of a bike skills path?

There is a need to deliver safe recreational destinations that provide new experiences and opportunities for young people and families in our community. This will offer young people a chance to enjoy outdoors recreational whilst being able to practice bicycle safety skills.
