New six ninja courses and scooter routes will be installed in four different Brisbane areas, encompassing the 2021-22 Budget.
As part of Council’s $215 million investment in parks and green space, Illaweena Park, Calamvale (south); Teralba Park, Everton Park (north); and Whites Hill Reserve (east) will house the ninja courses.
New scooter tracks are set for Paul Conti Park, Hemmant (east); Kathleen Street Park, Richlands (south); and Wittonga Park, The Gap (west).
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said the process design for the three new ninja courses would start this year.
“The ninja courses will be the ultimate fitness and agility test, providing obstacles that test strength, endurance, coordination, balance and flexibility,” he said.
“For those that prefer to be on two wheels, the scooter tracks will provide a place to navigate through obstacles and ride over ramps and boulders, with the tracks suitable for toddlers through to experienced riders.
“The Budget was unashamedly focused on the suburbs, with 86 per cent of the budget invested in the suburbs.
“Our parks and playgrounds are part of everyday life for so many Brisbane residents, and we are committed to delivering and upgrading parks, so they have the best designs and the best facilities,” Cr Schrinner said.
Last year, Brisbane City Council opened a ninja course at St Lucia and an award-winning scooter track at Bradbury Park.
