Proposed Bike Trail at Newborough Rainer Reserve

Open
The City is seeking your feedback on the location of a beginner bike trail at Newborough Rainer Reserve, Karrinyup. Closing date: 4 July 2021 Follow project

The City has seen an increase in informal bike trails being constructed in environmental conservation areas.

Unfortunately, the creation of trails in natural conservation areas is unsustainable and the City needed to remove the trails. While this is the case, the City recognises that bike riding and riding trails is rising in popularity and it is important to provide these types of facilities to the community.

Newborough Rainer Reserve has been chosen as a suitable location, situated amongst a natural setting whilst offering a varied terrain suitable for BMX and mountain bike riding.
