The scooter track and playground at Paul Conti Park in Hemmant is now open. The Brisbane City Council officially announced the completion of the project on Saturday, November 26.

Situated on the outskirts of the Wynnum/Manly area, Hemmant’s Paul Conti Park is the latest in a series of four scooter tracks to be completed by Council. The initiative forms part of the local government’s plan to enhance and maintain more than 2,100 parks across Brisbane.

Features of the scooter track at Paul Conti Park

Brisbane City Council says the inspiration for the scooter track at Paul Conti Park is taken from an island adventure. It’s sure to be popular with families.

You’ll find a fantastic track for bikes and scooters to zoom around on. There is also a shaded island-themed playground with a beach hut, double swing, mini-theatre, slide and fishing rod.
