A newly-opened pump track in Wodonga is among the outdoor play spaces that have been locked down by councils around the region, in line with government restrictions.
Due to COVID-19, fitness equipment, playgrounds, pump and BMX tracks and barbecues are now closed to the public in Wodonga.
Walking tracks and parks remain accessible but the community is reminded to practice social distancing and keep 1.5 metres apart from others.
The Birallee Park pump track in the south-west corner of the park was only opened officially to the public on March 20.
The asphalt track was designed and built by Trail Scapes on vacant land next to the BMX and hockey facilities in Silva Drive.
Wodonga Council funded stage one of the pump track in the current budget, which was completed in five weeks.
The closure of outdoor spaces is in line with federal government's restrictions imposed on Tuesday night.
