The winter riding season is officially open with the return of pop-up pedal parks, which now include an additional location in South Maroubra. Time to have a wheely good time at these outdoor recreational spaces! Don’t forget to wear your helmets!

The South Maroubra pop-up pedal park along the Arthur Byrne Reserve, 1R Marine Parade, Maroubra, officially launches Thursday, 9 June 2022, at 3:00 p.m. with Mayor Dylan Parker. It will remain open until August, alongside the pop-up pedal parks at the Clovelly Beach and the Chifley Sports reserve car park on Bunnerong Road.

This initiative was originally set up in June 2020 to encourage the kids to have their exercises and physical activities amidst the lockdown when many sports facilities were temporarily shut down and the children have to homeschool. 

The Council proposed to install safe and accessible pedal parks for winter exercises every year. With its re-opening in 2021, Council added ramps and tunnels so that kids could develop new skills as well as allow families more time for outdoor recreation.

“It’s wonderful to be able to build on it and expand the pedal parks so more kids can take part in the time-tested fun of riding a bike or skateboard[ing] with your friends,” said Mayor Dylan Parker. 

While the pedal parks are installed, the parking spaces will be closed to cars.
