An online petition to build a dirt jump track in Doreen for teenage riders has gained more than 1000 signatures after their track was bulldozed by council.
The group had taken it upon themselves to build a track for ‘advanced riders’ with dirt jumps at Hill Top Park, something they said they couldn’t do at a skate park.
City of Whittlesea council bulldozed the jumps on two occasions due to safety concerns and the environmental impact to the grassland.
What’s happening now.
The City of Whittlesea are planning and building dirt jumps in the Doreen area. We will be working closely with the local community to deliver a facility that can be shared and enjoyed by locals and encourage anyone with an interest in this to get involved.
How to get involved
We want young people to be involved in every stage of this project. If you live locally and love the idea of helping make this dirt jump track a reality, we want to hear from you.

We are currently in the planning stage and are undertaking a feasibility study to determine the scope and possible location of the dirt jumps.
Following this, we will develop concept plans which you will have the opportunity to have your say on. This will be used to develop the detailed design and program the construction.
