Windsor Siding Reserve

Have your say on the Windsor Siding BMX track upgrade

Since opening in late 2016, the Windsor Siding BMX track has been a big hit with the local community and a popular spot for families and BMX enthusiasts.

Five years on, the track surface is a little worse for wear and in need of an upgrade. This has presented an opportunity to revisit the design - modify the layout to make it safer and more accessible to users of all ages and skill levels, and change the surface to a smooth bitumen, creating a multi-sport facility for BMX, skateboarding and scooters.

The draft design also introduces lots of landscaping and greenery in and around the space.

Before settling on a final design, we would like to hear what you think of the draft. Do you like it? Is there anything you would like to change?

  • Stage three revised concept plan

    supporting image

    Thank you for providing feedback on proposed concept plan for Windsor Siding stage 3 in June 2018.

    Please see the revised concept plan HERE which incorporates comments and feedback received from the community.

    What has changed:

    • Increased native planting and garden beds
    • Increased Australian native trees within the lawn area to encourage and support bird life
    • BBQ to be retained
    • Expanded garden beds and planting along the edge of the park to Peel Street to provide a barrier between park and Peel Street
    • Removal of the 1m wide gravel path along Alpha place

    What has not changed:

    Council acknowledges that we received mixed comments about the proposed concrete path, while some residents were in favour of having gravel path the others were supportive of concrete. Considering that this path will serve as a primary entrance to Windsor Siding from Peel Street and in line with Council’s commitment to provide access for all abilities, a concrete path will be installed. This path will perform better in all weathers and the material will match with the other paths within the park.

    The concept plan proposes to maintain all the existing trees.

    Construction of stage 3 is proposed to commence in the coming months, Council will notify residents and park users prior to construction.

Along with these facilities, Council have also installed CCTV cameras to improve the safety of the park.
