Project Overview

Project Overview

The Waurn Ponds Skate Park is getting set for an upgrade. The City is contributing $600,000 towards the project, adding to the $1.34m Victorian Government investment through its Sport and Recreation Victoria Community Sport Stimulus Infrastructure Program.

The popular skate park will be getting a re-design and a refresh. We are continuing to incorporate community feedback into the design.
