View the Concept Plan for the Manning Park Mountain Bike Trail Network

Background

Manning Park is a popular destination for people of all ages and interests. In 2017, with the help of the community, the City developed the Manning Park Master Plan - a guide for how we enhance the park's amenity, while protecting its environmental values.

One of the recommendations of the Master Plan and a key priority for the community was to have a network of well-designed and sanctioned mountain bike trails (these would largely follow trails that already exist). A planned network would help to:

  • improve safety for walkers and runners (walkable limestone trails throughout the park will remain)
  • reduce conflict with other park users
  • minimise further environmental harm being caused by unauthorised trail construction
  • allow for revegetation and rehabiliation of some unsanctioned trails

The City engaged consultants, Common Ground, to undertake extensive consultation with mountain bikers and the community and develop a draft concept plan.The plan is only a concept and is subject to feedback from the community. Please note further detailed design and consultation would be required.

As the first Urban Mountain Bike development proposed in Western Australia, the survey attracted a large response, with 765 respondents, 39% being residents of the City of Cockburn. 99% of respondents think Perth needs Urban Mountain Bike trails and 96.4% of riders or family members use mountain bike trails in the Perth area. 96% of respondents thought Urban mountain bike trails should be developed in Manning Park. Four per cent did not support, or were unsure if they supported, formalised trails in Manning Park. The top two barriers to riding identified by respondents were lack of trails within close proximity and lack of good and new trails. View a summary of results here.
