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.
