ELLON WHEEL PARK

Ellon Wheel Park is a project to design and deliver a brand new sports facility suitable for various different types of non-motorised, wheeled equipment in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. 

The Ellon Wheel Park committee has been formed to build a 650-yard-long facility in the town. It submitted an expression of interest to SportScotland, after the body launched an £8 million fund for cycling facilities, as part of Glasgow’s hosting of the Cycling World Championships in 2023.

 

The Ellon team have now received the go-ahead to make an application for full funding for the project.

During the BMX craze of the 1980s, Ellon residents signed a petition in their droves for a dirt track for the town.

The then Gordon District Council rejected the plans, however funds for that campaign have been redirected to the current project.

Scottish Adventure Cycling is supporting this project and you can read more about the Ellon Wheel Park here:
