Welcome to the website of the Taranaki Cycle Park.

INTRODUCTION

The Taranaki Velodrome Trust was formed in May 2006 with the vision of replacing Taranaki’s only velodrome that had been removed to make way for the sports development now known as Yarrow Stadium. That vision grew  to also include a completely vehicle free Road Circuit. There is no other facility like it in New Zealand.

The Taranaki Cycle Park was officially opened on 2 September 2012. It is situated at Hickford Park, Bell Block adjacent to the foreshore pathway - a few kilometers on from the Te Wera Bridge. Or may be accessed by road from Bell Block down Parklands Avenue then follow the sign down Smeaton Road.

The  Park  includes:
1.75km closed road circuit with 2 separate1km loops and a 333 metre velodrome.

Plus added in 2015:
Junior Mini Road circuit with Traffic Lights, Roundabouts etc, Limestone obstacle course, Pump track and
Learners Pad

The Park is open 24/7 and is free for individuals to use unless booked for an event or activity. For details of events and information on booking procedures please check the calendar on the bookings page.

Current Trustees are: Wayne Silby (chairperson) Russell Martin, Ian Selby,  Graham Walker and Graham Park.
