Building & Planning

Onslow Skate Park Facility

Works on the Onslow Skate Park commenced in late September 2016.  CONVIC were awarded the contract in September 2016 to undertake the woks adding a valuable space for town for residents of all ages.

Preliminary works have seen the old basketball court fencing removed and the existing site area, including the old basketball slab, shaped creating the first stages of the Skate Space.

Over the coming weeks works will include;

  • Excavation and bulk earth works for the “bowl” and other skate features
  • Installation of shade structures
  • Incorporation of relaxed rest area
  • Ping Pong table
  • Landscaping and artificial grass installation

To ensure that the community is actively involved in the project, 10 local children have been selected as Ambassadors for the Skate Park development.  They have been actively involved in the design and planning stages of the project and are currently facilitating a competition for the name and logo of the facility to be incorporated into official signage. 

It is anticipated that the Skate Park will be completed by mid December 2016.

The Onslow Skate Park has been made possible through BHP Billiton as part of the Macedon Projects State Development Agreement funding.
