$959,947 Funding Awarded for New Mountain Bike Trails in Boddington

Published on Friday, 24 May 2024 at 10:21:18 AM

The Williams Reserve in Boddington is poised to become a premier destination for mountain biking enthusiasts, thanks to a substantial grant of $959,947 under the Australian Government’s Priority Community Infrastructure Program.

This significant funding will be used to design and construct a series of mountain bike trails of varying lengths, styles, and classifications within Williams Reserve. The project aims to cater to riders of all skill levels, from beginners to advanced, offering a much-needed recreational facility in the region.

The initiative is driven by recommendations from the Peel Trails Strategy, which highlights the need for improved and additional trail facilities to enhance recreational opportunities and attract visitors to the area. The 2022-2032 Council Plan also reflects growing community interest in trails, indicating a rising demand for outdoor recreational activities within Boddington. Currently, there is an undersupply of mountain bike trails in the area, and this project seeks to address that gap, providing residents and visitors with more options for outdoor activities and promoting a healthier lifestyle.

Boddington Shire President Garry Ventris expressed enthusiasm about the project, stating, "This funding is a game-changer for our community. The new mountain bike trails will not only provide a fantastic recreational facility for our residents but also attract visitors to our beautiful region, boosting local tourism and the economy."

The design phase of the project will commence shortly, with construction expected to begin later this year.
