Ninja courses and scooter tracks will soon be across all four corners of the city as part of the Schrinner Council’s $215 million investment in parks and green space.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said his 2021-22 Budget allocated funding for three new ninja courses and three new scooter courses.
“Our parks and playgrounds are part of everyday life for so many Brisbane residents, and we are committed to delivering and upgrading parks, so they have the best designs and the best facilities,” Cr Schrinner said.
“Last year we opened a ninja course at St Lucia and an award-winning scooter track at Bradbury Park and they have been so incredibly popular that we’re going to deliver three more of each.
“When selecting locations for the new courses and tracks we focused on making sure they were spread across north, south, east and west so no matter where you live you won’t be far from a new facility.”
New ninja courses:
- Illaweena Park, Calamvale (south)
- Teralba Park, Everton Park (north)
- Whites Hill Reserve (east)
New scooter tracks:
- Paul Conti Park, Hemmant (east)
- Kathleen Street Park, Richlands (south)
- Wittonga Park, The Gap (west)
Cr Schrinner said the process design for the three new ninja courses would start this year.
“The ninja courses will be the ultimate fitness and agility test, providing obstacles that test strength, endurance, coordination, balance and flexibility,” he said.
“For those that prefer to be on two wheels, the scooter tracks will provide a place to navigate through obstacles and ride over ramps and boulders, with the tracks suitable for toddlers through to experienced riders.
“The Budget was unashamedly focused on the suburbs, with 86 per cent of the budget invested in the suburbs.
“These new projects are all part of my plan to deliver more for residents to do in their suburbs and ensuring the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today.”
