Background

Wellington City Council worked with the Capital BMX Club to plan, fundraise and build the Wellington BMX Track. 

The track was designed by Australasia’s leading BMX track designer, Brett Barnes of DIRTZ, and was built by internationally-renowned New Zealand track builders Empire of Dirt.

The Capital BMX Club is a registered charity with the purpose of establishing and maintaining a BMX track in Wellington to provide the region with the opportunity to learn and participate in the fun-filled sport of BMX.
