Nick-named the 'Scar' the local Queanbeyan Council has worked hard with trail designers builders Dirtz Designs and Constructions and have built the first tailor made public dirt jump and pump track facility in the Canberra/Queanbeyan area. When designing the park the Council sought comments from riders of all abilities to ensure that this park will meet its objectives of having something for everyone and to my mind they have succeeded.
The park is perfect for riders of all levels and you would be hard pressed to find something you didn't like. Every time I have been there it has been filled with riders of all ages and one of the biggest crowds is the little kids. Don't let that fool you, when your son/daughter is learning the early ropes of riding off-road you will be able to practice your 360s right next to them on the dirt jumps.
The park is perfect for everyone - and that's not just the normal marketing hype that you get. From beginner pump tracks to advanced jumps the park is the place for everyone to ride. The park really has been designed as a place to progress your riding and you'll definitely find something that either suits your current needs to something that you can progress to.
For the beginner, there is nothing you can't do, and if you are advanced I bet that there are lines on the pump track that will tempt you but still beat you.
