Faringdon is a new residential development in Canterbury that contains a large number of facilities available for the community to utilise. RICH Landscapes was engaged to design a concrete pump track that would fit the environment and tone of the community, providing an area for residents to engage in wheeled-play activity.
Located in the Westwood section of Farringdon, the design integrates a stylised pump track into the environment contained by two pathways.
Constructed by our main contractor, Angus McMillan Concrete the development of the park has been a breeze; they worked around a few rainy days during construction and were able to execute the implementation of minor changes that came up during the project. Ultimately, they’ve delivered a solid facility where build quality looks exceptional and skates amazingly!
The pump track itself is comprised of two loops with a middle-section that flows between both tracks, and allows users access to the surrounding pathways. Both sections of the design cater to varying skill levels, and incorporate an array of purpose-built obstacles and features to give the park a unique feel.
Features of the pump track include:
1. FLOW GRC Rollovers
2. Variety of Insitu Concrete Rollovers
3. Jump Box and Table Top elements
4. Learner bank and transition
5. Central area for transition between the two tracks
The design is adjacent seating arrangements in the outer area of the park, giving users and community members space to sit while still having a view of the wheeled-play area.
Faringdon Pump Track will be open towards the end of May - we look forward to seeing you down there!
