With an amazing setting amongst the Adventure Park, the proposed community hub is designed to create focus and opportunity for local groups. The low impact building will be available for events, meetings, and recreation.  The intention is for an Indigenous Australian Interpretive Exhibition to be on permanent display along with curated walking tours and events.

PROPOSED MULTI-PURPOSE FITNESS EQUIPMENT

For all ages

 

Multi-Fitness Park As A Catalyst For Adventure & Exploration of the Mornington Peninsula


As part of the World Class development potential at Arthur’s Seat a concept for a large scale ‘Multi-Fitness Park’ has been considered. The Mornington Peninsula relies heavily on activity tourism. Tree-surfing, winery tours, equestrian activities, golf, day spas and some of the most gorgeous beach fronts in Australia. Adding a destination activity such as a large scale cross fit park designed to accommodate the needs of mountain bikers, runners, parents & children, dog owners and walkers would help the region attract and retain visitors.

 

With Melbourne being less than an hour away on the new link it is an opportunity to offer visitors activities that will promote longer visits and therefore increased expenditure in the local community. 

 

Mountain bike parks in Canada, the USA and the United Kingdom has contributed up to $100 million per annum in spin off spending with accommodation, hospitality and other activity based businesses. Parks in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland would attest to the beneficial cultural change.

 

 

 

 

 

Using the mountain bike part as the core of the proposed multi-fit park will give it a clear focus and marketability. Linking into the existing Arthur’s Seat trail network and the adopted roadside verge trail network will amplify the Mornington Peninsula’s potential to appeal to a broad range of user groups.

 

The Red Hill Riders have visited and studied many examples around the world of other mountain bike parks to see what elements can be injected into the Arthur’s Seat concept. This is an incredibly exciting concept as it involves combining the needs and wants of a broad range of recreational users.

 

The two large paddock areas adjoining Boundary Road have been identified as a natural location for this proposed multi-activity park. The area has been earmarked for ‘recreational use’ in the Shire’s master plan.

 

Having a clear strategy to develop the paddock area inline with the overall vision of a mountain bike park will provide the Peninsula with a tremendous amenity asset and a legacy for the local community.

MOUNTAIN BIKING ON THE PENINSULA

 

Mountain biking has increased in popularity over the past 20 years to become one of the leading recreational activities. Crossing a wide range of social demographics, mountain biking is a unifying pastime that promotes healthy living, a connection with nature and community focus.

 

Starting off as a few riders venturing off the beaten track, the sport has now spread as a global pastime for a huge amount of people. It is a open and inclusive sport which provides a sustainable and enjoyable way to meet like minded people and keep fit.

 

Due to the increase in interest, mountain bike trails have gradually evolved on Arthur’s Seat, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. This informal network of trails has the potential to be a ‘World Class’ mountain bike park. Parks Victoria recognised the growing community desire for authorised trails and has worked in conjunction with the Red Hill Riders to engage in a process of public consultation and management.

 

Trails have been mapped and assessed for sustainability. A long term strategy has been put in place to ensure that positive development of the park can take place to maintain both the existing flora and fauna as well as the growing needs of the cycling community.

 

By engaging in this proactive management policy Parks Victoria have secured the cooperation, and visionary ownership by the mountain biking community in a model example of community engagement by a State authority.

 

All those involved wish to see the precious parkland preserved as well as developed for healthy living.
