The Master Plan, final version to be delivered May 2022, will feature mountain bike and walking trail locations, rock climbing and abseiling locations, site layout including vehicle and pedestrian circulation, access and parking locations, a pump track location and concept design, picnic areas, outdoor event area, amenity locations and concepts, and storage facilities.
