Skate park getting a facelift

Monbulk's skate park is gettting an upgrade

Skaters will be stoked with news of a new stomping ground – with rad upgrades planned for Monbulk Skate and Scooter Park.

Already having a lot to offer for its size in its current form, the new skate park at Monbulk Recreation Reserve will keep the existing half pipe, while new features such as a street section, flow area and intermediate bowl will be added.

The revamp is being partly funded through the State Government’s 2019/2020 Growing Suburbs Fund program.

The current skate park is popular for both locals and visitors alike, with its five ft concrete mini ramp with traditional steel coping and heaps of street obstacles.

It’s also surrounded by many trees so visitors don’t feel like they are trapped in a concrete jungle.

Residents were given their choice of four layouts for the upgrades, which will shape the council’s design.

Once designs have been completed, the council will program the skate park to be constructed.

It is expected the project will be fully complete by 2022.
