We did

The feedback has informed our concept design. 

We’ll be keeping features you liked and replacing some features with more modern features to enhance the flow. 

We’ll grind and re-surface the existing skatepark, so it rides like new. We will also extend the skatepark to provide more opportunities for a range of new features and riders of all abilities to enjoy. 

We'll add more seating around the skatepark and community house so you families and friends can enjoy watching as well.  We will also be adding new drinking fountain, rubbish bins and improved footpath to and around the skate park. and providing shade to the area.

We’ll be shifting and building a new half-court basketball court and provide new lighting to improve safety and security to enable more use of the facility by the community.  

Construction is expected to take place in March 2024.
