Project Overview

The construction works to enhance the St Leonards Skate Park have reached successful completion.

Key features of the completed St Leonards Skate Park upgrade include:

  • new skate area featuring a mini-ramp, quarter pipes, flat banks, rails, and a manual pad
  • plaza and park features
  • new shelter and seating areas
  • ENE Hub smart pole and
  • drinking fountain

The project's first stage, finalised in February 2023, involved the demolition of the existing skate park and the completion of the multi-sport court with two basketball/futsal goals and two netball rings.

The concept design for stage two was developed collaboratively with the local community, including skateboard enthusiasts.

The $670,000 upgrade became a reality through a $310,000 investment from the City of Greater Geelong and $360,000 from the Victorian Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program.

Community Engagement Report

Community Feedback

During December 2020 and January 2021 we provided the draft concept plan for community consultation.

The community was able to provide feedback in a number of ways:

  • A quick poll below to tell us if you liked the concept or not;
  • A survey to tell us what is important to you and provide general feedback;
  • Adding comments and ideas directly onto features of the concept plan and seeing what others said using the 'Social Map' tool.

The feedback was very positive and has enabled us to progress the project.
