A muddy good time - fun at the new pump track, Woodall Park.

The deluge on Monday 21st March didn't deter these hardy mountain bike enthusiasts, already super keen to make the very best use of the fantastic new pump track in Narrowneck. This long-awaited and much-needed addition to the community has been driven by Bob McGuigan, and Devonport Rotary with the generous support of many key helpers. Expert retired Master Builder Peter Clayton and keen locals built the timber jump start, an awesome tough structure which forms the main feature of the park, with all timber and hardware generously supplied by Devonport Timber. Gill and Gundry and Brett Garea supplied bobcat earth movers, with Warren Gill on site responsible for the on-going shaping of the tracks. Tree and shrub planting will follow soon, with support from Restoring Takarunga Hauraki, plus the final touches to an accidental extra track near the Squash Club named 'Gundry’s Mistake'! A huge community-wide effort has seen the project nearly through to completion and clearly, the kids just love it already! Keep an eye on the Devonport Locals FB page for calls to action for working bees planned for the final push.
