New pump track opens at Chesterton Recreation Ground





A new pump track has opened at Chesterton Recreation Ground.

The track, created by Cambridge City Council, is a continuous loop of smooth Tarmac with jumps designed to maximise momentum so users can ride with minimal pedalling or pushing.

It offers an opportunity for riders of all ages and abilities to practise their skills and is suitable for bikes, scooters, skateboards and roller-skates. Cllr Alex Collis, executive councillor for open spaces, food justice, and community development, said: “It’s always so positive to see new outdoor facilities being provided to make it easier for people to come together and enjoy our city’s wonderful open spaces.

“The new track is an exciting new facility for Chesterton Recreation Ground and I can’t wait to see people using it. It’s a real boost for the area and offers users a chance to develop their skills and enjoy spending time outdoors.”

The track has been funded by Section 106 developer contributions, which are intended to mitigate the impact of new development by providing additional local facilities or improving existing ones.
