Central Coast Council have completed $760,800 redevelopment works on the BMX facilities at San Remo to create a highly active sporting hub for the north of the Central Coast.

Mayor Jane Smith said this quality sporting precinct delivers on what the community has asked for, whilst providing a facility that promotes an active lifestyle and new attraction for visitors to our region.

“Our community voted for the BMX track redevelopment as a top 10 priority project and we have fast tracked the project to deliver a state of the art BMX sporting facility suitable for recreational usage and to run local and regional competitions -  during the day and night,”  Mayor Smith said.

The redevelopment works have created a high quality facility and included construction of an amenities building (that included a commercial grade kitchen and canteen, scorer’s room, accessible amenities and storerooms), redevelopment of the BMX track with installation of polymer coating to prevent erosion of the track surface, installation of start hill shelter, installation of competition track floodlighting and landscaping works.

This project  was made possible with thanks to a $710,000 grant from the NSW State Government’s Stronger Communities Fund, made available to amalgamated Councils, plus the investment from the NSW Government grants secured by San Remo BMX Club - $31,849 Family and Community Services Community Building Partnership grant and $11,165 from the NSW Office of Sports, local sports grant.

The community are encouraged to visit the new facilities and try BMX riding at the official opening and San Remo BMX Club’s Ridein2BMX ‘come and try’ day on Saturday 27 October.  The opening address will be from 10.30am and the club’s gala day will run until 1pm.

San Remo Club president, Shane Robertson said, “BMX (Bicycle Motor Cross) is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia where everyone can participate from the age of 2 years through to seniors!  It’s an action packed fun sport that’s great exercise for kids and family and our club offers a chance to compete in organised race meetings throughout Australia. This new BMX Facility is of the highest standard and we would like to thank Central Coast Council, NSW State Government and all involved for getting this facility to where it is today.”
