Park signs to deter bikers at Two Rocks

CONCERNS raised at a residents meeting prompted installation of “no motorbike” signs at a Two Rocks park.

Earlier this year, attendees of a Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association (TRYRA) meeting raised concerns about people riding off-road bikes at Charnwood Park.

At the time, they said a man had responded to their complaint that there were no signs telling him not to.

At the May 25 TRYRA meeting, Wanneroo councillor Linda Aitken said rangers had patrolled the park and not seen any motorbike riders using it.

However, she said the city had decided to install two signs that said motorbikes were not allowed.

According to the city’s website, offroad motorbikes are only allowed at the designated offroad vehicle area in Pinjar, or similar areas in the City of Swan and Shire of Gingin.

Yanchep Police Sergeant Jason Macander said he had received information regarding anti-social behaviour and damage around the park.

“We have increased our presence in that area, including the Phil Renkin Recreation Centre to identify those responsible and ensure it does not continue,” he said.

“We have already had success in identifying a number of youths who are believed to be responsible and have taken appropriate actions to work with their families and schools to put them back on the right path.

“The majority of youths attending the skate park and local facilities are law abiding kids who we enjoy engaging with.”
