Community members are invited to provide input on the design of the proposed new Beaconsfield Skate Park at a workshop on Friday 21 July.
Facilitated by experts in skate park design, Playce, the workshop will be held from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in the community room at the home of the new skate park, Holm Park Recreation Reserve, 100 Beaconsfield-Emerald Road, Beaconsfield.
Cardinia Shire Council’s acting team leader of recreation and facilities, Fiona Christopher, said the community design workshop was a great opportunity for young people and local families to help shape the kind of facility they wanted to see developed.
“We’re keen to get ideas and opinions for the skate park design from the people in this community, especially the young people that will use the skate park,” Ms Christopher said.
“In addition, council is currently seeking four young people to join the working group, which has been established to assist in forming the design.
“This is going to be a brilliant facility, and we believe the community should be involved from the start.”
According to council, establishing the working group and hosting this workshop are the first steps in what will be two phases of consultation with the local community.
Phase two will involve draft design feedback through a public exhibition period.
Jointly funded by Cardinia Shire Council and the Australian Government’s Community Development Grants Programme, the new Beaconsfield Skate Park is planned for construction throughout summer 2017-’18, and will include footpath connections, shelter, a drink fountain, bins, landscaping and sealing of the main car park at the reserve.
To express interest in joining the working group, email Fiona Christopher at f.christopher@cardinia.vic.gov.au
