Gillingham: BMX Pump Track

In 2016 we held a consultation with local residents and visitors of the park about introducing a BMX pump track at Queen Elizabeth Fields in Gillingham.

Since then the pump track was granted planning permission and we have secured funding from the Local Growth Fund of £170,000.

The works to prepare the site for construction will start from 28 August 2018 including ducting, CCTV and creating a temporary track road.

The construction of the BMX pump track will begin in September and we aim for it to be completed by October half term.

We are organising an opening day and will update you with details.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused whilst the works take place. 

If you have any queries or see any vandalism please call Medway Council on 01634 333 333

What is a pump track?

A pump track is:

  • a closed circuit with mounds, banked corners and jumps
  • a track that gives cyclists of all ages and skill levels the chance to move using momentum rather than pedalling
  • a great way to increase bike handling skills for younger riders
  • a way for the whole family to enjoy cycling in a fun, safe and traffic free setting
  • suitable for any children’s bikes, BMX bikes and mountain bikes
