Children in Laverton spent last week enjoying a new modular pumptrack, believed to be the most remotely located pumptrack in the world.

The track, developed as a oval skate park alongside the town’s youth centre, was built a week and a half ago, and Shire president Patrick Hill said Laverton youth “had not been off it since”.

“We found out it’s the most remote modular pumptrack in the world,” he said. “It was brought on by the youth services team and council, and they all agreed it was a great opportunity for the kids to engage in outdoor activities.

“Since it’s been erected the kids haven’t been off it, it’s great, they absolutely love it.

“It was simple to put together, we can add to it and change it now whenever we want.

“It’s terrific to see the kids take such interest in it and will be a great asset to the town.”
