Statement from Cllr Peter McDonald:

“It’s been a long wait but it’s good news: works will start on 29th March repairing and improving the BMX track in Brook Road Park, Rubery.

This is one of the very few BMX Tracks in the district and therefore gets a lot of use. The track provides a great deal of fun for young people while improving and developing their mountain bike skills and getting fitter at the same time.

Since BMX racing began in the US in the 1960s, it has grown into a popular international sport for all ages. It is now even featured in the Olympic Games. It’s really good that Rubery has such a facility recognising that it is a fast-developing sport.”
