Radio-Controlled Model Car Circuit

Jordon Valley Park has not one but two remote-controlled model car circuits! The first is 1,800 square metres and is at international standards. This large track is open to the public but can also be host to at least one group booking per month, so it’s worth checking out the LCSD website for these dates as well as its monthly maintenance day.

Thankfully the second circuit was created just for children and families. It is smaller and shaded but still has plenty of room to zoom around. With such ample space, your child can finally take out their toy vehicles for the rides they’ve been hoping for and live out their race car dreams.

Both racetracks are open daily from 9am to 10:30pm.
