Glenorchy Council are seeking to survey users about their use and views of the current facilities at Glenorchy MTB Park as part of the development of a new masterplan.
Glenorchy City Council have engaged renowned mountain bike park designers and consultants, Dirt Art, to develop a Masterplan for the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park.
Glenorchy’s Mountain Bike Park, which opened in 2005, has never had an overarching plan to guide its management and development. A Masterplan is seen as a crucial step in guiding the development of the facility over the next fifteen years with the aim of meeting the expectations of riders and other visitors to the facility and adjacent areas of Wellington Park and Tolosa Park.
The Masterplan will identify where new trails and features should be constructed, identify what infrastructure is required for a contemporary mountain bike park, look at whether some features should be removed or rejuvenated, investigate the options for linking the facility with other biking infrastructure in the City (i.e., the Intercity Cycleway), look at improving the entrance and access into the Park, and propose measures for integrating the facility with Tolosa Park.
As part of the community engagement process for the Masterplan, Dirt Art has designed a user survey to gauge how mountain bike riders use and view the current facility. The survey closes on 15 January 2020.

Further community consultation will take place early in 2020 and will ensure other users of the facility and nearby Tolosa Park have an opportunity to comment on the Masterplan.
