Learn to Ride at Clifton Street Park
About the Project
Clifton Park Learn to Ride Facility in Sanctuary Point was officially opened in October 2015. It is part of the rejuvenation of Clifton Street park, which now houses the Clifton Community Food Garden Sanctuary Point, the Sanctuary Point Men's Shed and a gated dog park. The Learn to Ride facility was designed to assist in teaching local children to ride safely on the area’s roads and increase the fitness and health of children in a fun and safe environment.
The $65,000 project, which was funded by Council ($20,000), Bendigo Bank ($20,000) and NSW Government Office of Sport and Recreation ($25,000). The project saw Council work closely with local residents, Sanctuary Point Community Pride Inc. and the Sanctuary Point Men’s Shed who constructed a sculpture and seating within the facility. The facility and park grounds are maintained by the Clifton Community Food Garden.
Sanctuary Point Community Pride facilitated the project to transform Clifton Park from a passive venue into an exciting and appealing attraction for local children. The Learn to Ride Facility provides both a fun and educational opportunity for children in the Bay and Basin area as they to learn to ride, understand road rules and interact with traffic in a safe environment.
Further to this, the track encourages youngsters to get outside and active while also providing an outdoor meeting place for parents.
UPDATE: July 2019 Council has installed at unisex disabled-friendly toilet and play equipment making this a great park for families.
