This Saturday, December 9, marks a momentous occasion for Nudgee as the grand opening of the sporting facility takes place from 8:45 a.m. to 12 noon.

Kicking off the opening are two free BMX workshops for kids aged 6-17 years, run by expert BMX riders from RampFest. Spots are limited so registration is essential. Following the workshops will be a jaw-dropping BMX demo and a free bike giveaway.

Other opening day activities include activities by Football Queensland, free access to the playground, picnic areas and dog off-leash zone, as well as fitness stations for adults. 

The Rotary Club of Nundah will be firing up the barbie for a classic Aussie sausage sizzle and breakfast burgers. Cool down afterwards with ice creams and snow cones from the ice cream van.

The centrepiece of the new facility is the BMX track for keen riders to test their skills. For those preferring to stay on foot, there are picturesque walking, running and cycling paths weaving through the grounds. The recreational area also includes a shared sports field, sheltered barbecue facilities and a new 223-space carpark.
