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.
Kids will love exploring in the dry creek bed with nature play elements. It also has a moveable scooter ferry, bridge and animal sculptures.
While parents will enjoy watching imaginations go wild from the new picnic shelter and seating.
Other scooter parks to open in 2022
Brisbane City Council built new scooter tracks at four Brisbane locations, including Paul Conti Park. You’ll also find recreational spaces at Shaftesbury Street Park, Tarragindi; Kathleen Street Park, Richlands; and Wittonga Park, The Gap.
“It is important to ensure our parks continue to meet the recreational needs of residents and visitors,” Brisbane City Council says.
The works at each of the parks ranges from the inclusion of a scooter track with moguls and texture panels to picnic shelters. You’ll also find local artwork and information about native flora and fauna visiting the areas.
