Marine Parade Pump Track
Napier’s bike pump track, located south of the carpark, opposite the Ellison Street entrance, is the first of its kind in New Zealand.
Designed by Jeff Carter of Rotorua’s South Star Adventures, the pump track is inspired by a track located in Mendrisio, Switzerland and has been popular since its completion in March 2015.
The basic goal of a pump track, besides having fun, is for the rider to learn how to pump the terrain to maintain speed. Pump tracks are set up with a series of rollers and berms that allow the rider to gain and maintain speed along the track without pedalling.
This full size pump track replaced the junior pump track and caters for a much wider range of skills, abilities, and ages. It covers an area of 60 metres long by 30 metres wide and consists of 500 metres of continuous tracks.
The track caters for a wide range of skills, abilities and ages and can also be used by keen skateboarders and scooter riders.
