Skate park extension ready for summer
Ideas submitted by the local skate community have been incorporated into the upgrade and extension of the Crestmead Skate Park.
Councillor Jon Raven, Council officers and designers met with local skate enthusiasts earlier this year and their feedback helped shaped the final designs for the park upgrade.
The nearly $800,000 project at the popular facility, located behind the PCYC in Gimlet Street, will include:
- new lighting for the skate park
- a set-up combination unit and new 1.8 metre quarter pipes
- replacement of an existing stair set
- removal of obstructing items to allow smoother transitions to the new ramps
- other embellishments across the park.
‘This exciting new space for local skaters is going to be worth the wait because we designed it based on what you told us you wanted,’ Cr Raven says.
The upgrade should be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting. The project is funded through the Division 5 Local Infrastructure Program.
Planning is also proceeding on Waterford West District Sports Park (between Chambers Flat Road and Marsden State High School’s sports fields).
Preliminary works are expected to start next year. It will be one of the biggest park developments in the City of Logan in recent years.
