The Mount Beauty Skate Park Upgrade project will extend the existing concrete skate park in Mount Beauty, to significantly improve features and options for a range of skate park users and skill levels.
This $265,000 project has been made possible through a $150,000 grant from the State Government and $15,000 from the Friends of the Mount Beauty Skate Park.
The Friends of the Mount Beauty Skate Park have been working towards an upgrade of the existing foreshore skate park since 2012. In 2017, Council worked with the local community to develop and finalise a concept which features a small bowl connecting to street and plaza elements.
The final concept design is designed to be accessible to a wide range of users and age groups, encouraging participation while remaining challenging for expert skaters to develop their skills.
The construction of the skate park upgrade is scheduled for the 2019/20 financial year.
