Al­bany chil­dren and their fam­i­lies flocked to Mil­para Park for the open­ing of the area’s first BMX pump track last week­end.

On June 30, a crowd of chil­dren spent their day on bikes and scoot­ers learn­ing the track, show­ing off tricks and try­ing to set their best times.

Lachy Vand­ser­schaat, 10, said he ex­pected to visit the course be­fore and af­ter school ev­ery day. “It’s good,” he said.

“You can go around any part and the jumps — you don’t have to fol­low the track.”

One grand­par­ent at the event said she hoped to see cy­cle paths in­stalled around Mil­para for adult cy­clists.
