RECENT letters in your Opinion pages have highlighted a need for mountain bike facilities in the northern suburbs. I would like to offer the following suggestion.
In the north-west of Yellagonga Regional Park, Joondalup (the area pictured above), is an open and lightly wooded area that I believe may have previously been a dairy.
This area may well be already gazetted as a potential recreational area. It is under the control of Department of Parks and Wildlife.
This open and sloping area could lend itself to being developed for mountain biking. It could be landscaped with endemic native plants to enhance the site and add to the biodiversity.
A paved cycle circuit could also be included on the site for the many northern suburbs road cyclists.
