Prestonpans Pump Track – Children & Young People’s View
Pump Tracks offer a fun, safe space for all ages and abilities to enjoy a range of wheel based activities including BMX bikes, scooters, skateboards and rollerblades.
The Ormiston Pump Track is already much-used and valued by its community and we’re keen to work with our partners to help more areas enjoy these benefits.

The site also contains a link to the Prestonpans pump track page which includes additional details on potential locations and a link to the public consolation for that area.
An early mapping exercise identified a number of Council-owned areas in Haddington that might be suitable for a pump track. Each location has its own unique attributes and opportunities, meaning that community views are essential to identifying the most appropriate space that could be progressed. The council is particularly keen to hear from children and young people and other groups who would use a pump track. All projects are subject to further detailed design, planning permission and full project funding, with the views of local people vital to help shape the projects at concept stage.
A pump track is designed to create a safe, fun and inclusive playground for all wheels-based users regardless of age or gender. They provide a playground for kids and adults from beginners to professionals and a sustainable and fun-packed activity for everyone in the community.
We hope you will find time to look over the Prestonpans pump track page which includes additional details on potential locations and contribute to the public consolation for that area.
