North Epping Skatepark/Pumptrack Action Group.
#2My son would love to ride his mountain bike with his friends at the local bike track rather than having to drive a long way to get to one.
Alison Grecian (North Epping , 2020-12-01)
#6My kids would love this and the community needs something for the in between kids to play at.
Erika Rendoth (North Epping , 2020-12-01)
#8Kids these days are spending more time glued to digital devices and therefore exercising less and not developing social skills. My kids love pump tracks bit we don't go often enough as none are very close.
Scott Collins (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#14This is a much needed investment in allowing kids to be outside, having fun in a safe environment
Ben Heard (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#15I believe the skate park/ pump track will provide a safe and healthy space for local youth to exercise and will help to protect the National Park by eliminating the need for the ad hock creation of jumps and bike tracks in the Bush.
Jeremy Smith (Sydney , 2020-12-01)
#16I support a skatepark / pump track in Nth Epping.

#21I want the kids in our neighbourhood to have a safe environment to ride their bikes!
Daria Rzasa (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#22I am a father of three school aged children and, having grown up in this suburb, I know first hand the abuse that the local children get from building jumps and riding through the neighbouring bush land.
As an adult I understand the dangers to the community, environment and children from hacking trails out of the bush and riding at speeds through the establish walking and fire trails.
This brilliant solution is way overdue for this suburb, given that children were doing the same thing for decades before I myself started doing it in the 1970/80’s.
We are fortunate in this suburb to have several viable locations to create this safe healthy space for the local community.
Stretch this space to incorporate a health park and add park workout stations so that parents can excercise while they supervise their children.
IT MUST BE DONE!
Matt Walker (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#27Much needed parks for our teens
Karen Ninness (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#28I believe the kids of North Epping, need a safe place to ride their bikes
Nisha Ray (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#30I want my children and other children in our neighbourhood to have access to a place where they can safely ride their bikes to provide them healthy outdoor exercise.
Paula Brodie (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#31This gives our kids a safe place to ride their bikes outside, away from screens, keeping fit and active.
Sarah Nam (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#32The local kids need somewhere to ride in a safe and sustainable environment.
Jonathon McKinnon (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#33I feel this is necessary to bring the community closer and get the kids outdoors
Toby Gibbons (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#34I’m signing as the both a MTB rider and father with kids who ride MTB’s and always looking for a place to ride safely.
Tony Dunn (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#35The kids need a safe, local place to ride their bikes, scooters and skateboards.
Chris Bellee (Sydney , 2020-12-01)
#36Our kids need somewhere safe to just be kids, away from 'screens' and outdoor
Eldon Wessels (Sydney , 2020-12-01)
#40The kids of North Epping desperately need a bike track. We’re the forgotten part of Hornsby Shire. It’s actually very sad.
Sara McCracken (North Epping , 2020-12-01)
#41I’m signing because our kids need a safe place to go and play with their bikes. Somewhere they can independently get to, seperate from parents, and be proud of and respect as part of the community options available to them. For this age group there really isn’t a space for them to go and engage in sporting activity and increase their skills in this unique and fun way.
Jessica Grauds (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#43There are no nearby facilities of this type and there has even a dramatic surge in the use of bikes/scooters/etc by children in the neighbourhood. A facility such as this will keep them safer off the street and will remove the need for unofficial tracks.
Andrew Pollock ( North epping, sydney, 2020-12-01)
#44This is absolutely necessary for the kids of North EPPING.
Amanda Joslin (North Epping, 2020-12-01)
#46My child loves riding his scooter and bike riding and has no where to do this in north Epping. He would need to catch a train to Hornsby or thornleigh to do this which is not appropriate. Due to this he now chooses to spend his time playing video games online
Kathryn Lawrenson (Sydney , 2020-12-01)
#47The local community of children need another outlet to learn new skills and focus outside attention away from indoor screen use. It would also be beneficial to the local environment, reducing the illegal development of bush track jumps
Allister Scott (North Epping, 2020-12-02)
#49I think it is essential to provide facilities such as this so that children can find challenging outdoor play facilities in a safe manner.
Louise Brodie (Berry , 2020-12-02)
#50North epping would be the perfect place to have a track for kids in the area
Natalie Collins (North epping, 2020-12-02)
#51Our children/Community need a designated place to ride/skate which is safe and fun.
Annette Wilson (North Epping Sydney, 2020-12-02)
#53Kids need to have space to play and have fun.
Anthea Holder-Grobe (North Epping , 2020-12-02)
#54I have a little boy who would love this
Catherine Murphy (Epping, 2020-12-03)
#55I believe that a park like this that can provide for children in the early ages helps to steer them in fhe right direction. You can’t go wrong with these type of outdoor activities.
Jenny Gorka (Sydney , 2020-12-03)
#56Great initiative. With a rapidly growing population in the Epping town centre, there is a big need for more active open space. A well located skate park (or mountain bike track) would be a great addition, especially for teenagers.
Peter Michie (Sydney, 2020-12-03)
#58Sydney is in desperate need of bike facilities for Kids - pump tracks are the perfect way for councils to build cost effective and low maintenance facilities
Sam Stockwell (Balgowlah Heights, 2020-12-07)
#59Pump tracks are needed throughout all suburban parts of the council area to provide important recreation for all ages. These will satisfy the huge demand for mountain biking in the council area
Melissa Sedgwick (West Pennant Hills, 2020-12-07)
#60This would be a long lasting, low maintenance facility which could be used by many groups and ages. Great family activity!
Damien Smith (Cherrybrook, 2020-12-07)
#62I have been thrilled to see the children cycling during this year. They need a place to enjoy, learn and be safe!
Skatepark or pumptrack please.
Anne Youll (North Epping, 2020-12-07)
#63Kids, teens, families and all the community benefit when fun, healthy, free activities are available in our local area.
Halcyon Bolt (GLADESVILLE , 2020-12-07)
#64This facility would provide a place for people (particularly youth) to enjoy fitness in a non team sport and environment and to practise their skills in a safe place.
Rob Fisher (Kings Park, 2020-12-07)
#65Our teenage kids need areas to play and develop beyond hanging out in shopping malls and in front of a screen
Mark Sedgwick (West Pennant Hills, 2020-12-07)
#68It makes sense to provide a facility like this to keep the kids off the roads. Also less likely to build their own.
Paul Cummins (North Epping, 2020-12-08)
#73Pump tracks are brilliant for kids of all ages and abilities for families to enjoy.
Andrew Porter (Mount Riverview, 2020-12-10)
#75I'm signing because I believe that kids should have a safe place to learn riding skills, play as well as the additional benefits of social interaction & being active outdoors.
Being able to play & interact with others & nature, sets these kids up for a healthy future.
Natasha Sargent (Ryde, 2020-12-10)
#77Kids need active play spaces not gaming to develop and be healthy.
Ben ROURKE (Sydney, 2020-12-10)
#80Because these kids deserve somewhere safe to ride instead of council limiting their ability.
Michael Savins (Sydney, 2020-12-10)
#82I believe that having outdoor venues like pump tracks is beneficial for the health and wellbeing of young people and adults.
Andrew P (Turramurra, 2020-12-10)
#83Kids need an outdoor bike park
Gretel Hay (Frenchs Forest, 2020-12-10)
#84There should be more options for places for kids to ride bikes and have fun
David Croft (LOFTUS, 2020-12-10)
#85This would be a great and healthy activity for kids and adults alike.
David Sinai (Epping, 2020-12-10)
#86The area has lost so many areas of non organised sport. These are activities for whole fanilies that manybeill continue with for life. Please let the kids develop bike handling skills
Peter Robinson (Newington, 2020-12-10)
#89We need more pumps around great way for rider at any age to gain skill
Would great to have them more assessable in the local area
Brendan Loizou (Ryde, 2020-12-10)
#91Kids need to be active, and it is our responsibility to provide them with places to do so safely and enjoyably. The more kids are out on a pump track or ride park, the fewer getting into less constructive activities. We need more safe riding areas for kids.
Anna Russell (Narrabeen, 2020-12-10)
#93I am proposing to the council to build a local pump track for the community
Junnan Ma (Sydney, 2020-12-10)
#94Council are supposed to provide facilities not destroy them.
Paul Hargrave (Castle Hill, 2020-12-10)
#97There is no bike track in our local area and my kids and other kids love riding .
William Teoh (Sydney, 2020-12-11)
#98The kids need outdoor activities
Liam Healy (Schofields, 2020-12-11)
#101Building valuable infrastructure like this helps encourage and motivate people of all ages to get outdoors and exercise.
It also focuses the riding and trails into a designated area, reducing unauthorised trail development and destructive activity.
Michael Robinson (Sydney, 2020-12-11)
#102I had nowehere to ride as a kid and it's great for exercise and fun.
Miles Hayler (Randwick, 2020-12-11)
#105Mountain biking is awesome
Tim Wakeling (Epping , 2020-12-11)
#108It's important for children, particularly as they reach the preteen and teen years to have somewhere safe to ride and develop their bike handling skills in dedicated spaces away from others in shared recreational spaces with children who are less proficient and can be at risk and pose a risk.
Craig Vernon (Woronora Heights, 2020-12-12)
#110My kids live in the area and would love this!!! There are also so many young kids riding in the street and it’s dangerous.
Isobel McPherson (North Epping , 2020-12-14)
