Pedal Power: Check out the new pump track at Ferguson Domain

Auckland Council, Kāinga Ora, local community group The Synergy Projects Trust, and the Oranga community have collaborated to install a temporary pump track at Fergusson Domain, outside the Oranga Community Centre. 

Oranga residents were able to shape the future of this space as part of the Auckland Council-led 'Oranga Decides' pilot project. Locals submitted ideas for projects that would enhance their community and then voted on the ones that would benefit themselves, their whānau and the family-oriented community the most.

Fergusson Domain is a vibrant hub of activity, encouraging community connections and fun for all ages. The new pump track offers a safe and accessible place for people of all ages to enjoy.

Four picnic benches have also been installed by the Onehunga Community Recycling Centre and The Synergy Projects Trust. They offer a space where individuals from different backgrounds, abilities and skill levels can actively participate while using the pump track, whether it's families enjoying a day out, teenagers practising their scooter skills, or seniors enjoying the weather while watching their children/grandchildren. 

Grab your scooter and head on down to check it out!
