John Dunn Challenge Park is the City of Armadale’s new state of the art bike park, which opened in April 2022.
The new park offers a wide range of cycle-based activities for all ages and abilities ranging from beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels. The build and opening of this park has been highly anticipated by the local community including children, BMX and mountain bike novices and enthusiasts. John Dunn Challenge Park is already attracting local and non-local visitors and is set to encourage tourism to the area, catering to the fast growing sports of BMX and mountain riding in WA.
The park features jump and pump tracks for beginner to advanced riders, a skills loop, bike safety track, bike minor maintenance kit and a mountain bike playground to keep toddlers and younger children active while learning fundamental bike handling skills and encouraging active transport.
These features were a result of nearly 500 people participating in workshops, open house, and surveys to help inform the development of this park. Construction was supported by a $270,000 Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund Grant from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, with the remainder of $1.3M funded by the City of Armadale
John Dunn Challenge Park provides a great space for the City of Armadale community to engage in physical activity, learn or improve new skills and foster their love for mountain biking and BMX sports. The park also provides a gateway into serious mountain bike trails situated in Armadale and the Perth Hills.
