Young skaters and cyclists are rolling on down to Bicentennial Park’s new skate park and youth precinct which was officially opened last week.
Kingston Mayor David Eden said he was proud to officially launch the $1.4million project which will serve local youngsters for years to come.
“This fantastic new skate park will give local teens and youngsters a fun, active, positive activity to entertain them and serve as a community meeting place,” Cr Eden said.
The new skate park and youth precinct features:
- skate bowl area
- multi-court play area
- timber climbing pole
- new lighting
- improved pathways
- new seating, shelters and shade sail
The project was funded by Kingston Council with support from the Victorian Government’s Department of Justice and the Department of Human Services.
Bicentennial Park is located at the corner of Thames Promenade and Scotch Parade in Chelsea.
