Tarragindi kids now have more options to put their scooter skills to the test! A new track has been installed at Shaftesbury Street Park as part of BCC’s Scooter Track Initiative.

Brisbane City Council announced on 17 November 2022 the completion of the scooter track installation at Shaftesbury Street Park, along with other similar installations at Kathleen Street Park in Richlands, Paul Conti Park in Hemmant and Wittonga Park in The Gap. 

The project is part of the Council’s initiative to deliver scooter tracks at these four locations based on the award-winning scooter track in Kedron’s Bradbury Park. With the new installations, Council aims to create more recreational opportunities for the community.
