Safe way of teaching road rules to kids
THE new cycling education park within the bounds of Gayndah Lions Park is already being welcomed by community members even before it is fully installed.
Once finished, the park will contain a number of scaled down road signs and lines for children to safely and easily learn some crucial road safety lessons.
The first stage was wrapped up in recent weeks with the foundations being installed, and already families have taken their children to the new and safe space.
Gayndah residents Russell and Lisa Baker took their sons Jimmy and Hamish to the park and said it was nice to have the option for children still learning the ride a bicycle.
“Sometimes when the older kids are over on the skate park it can be a bit intimidating for the boys,” Mrs Baker said.
“I think this is great.” Hamish is just off his training wheels so the park is perfect for his continued learning.
“Riding on the grass is hard because it is slow and riding on this is kind of hard too because of the corners,” Hamish said.
Further additions and upgrades to the Gayndah Lions Park are scheduled in the future.
