White Wickets Park Pump Track was built by Clark & Kent Contractors for Wyre Forest District Council in Worcestershire.
The track was built in a public open space alongside the already successful children's adventure play area and multi-use games area.
The pump track design brief was to accommodate the adventure play area and to cater for a lot of younger children as the park is adjacent to a school.
The site was a long narrow plot of land which was sloped and through the consultation and design period it was decided to cut and fill on separate levels to give the pump track some cascade.
The BMX pump track is a typical two straight design incorporating two 180° berms to enable users to make a continuous loop if they desire.
The track is around 150 metres long and allows all types of user to increase their riding skills along with their health and fitness.
A stone sub base was used in the pump track construction along with limestone surface and tarmacadam berms and starting area.
In addition to this, a comprehensive drainage system was installed to tie into the existing drainage scheme.
Wyre Forest District Council were very happy with the finished product and it has spurred additional interest in the area for similar facilities.
