Skaters can now drop in, kick flip or ollie to Delahey Recreation Reserve.

The council has completed works on a new skate park and mayor Lucinda Congreve invited everyone down for the grand opening.

“Council is thrilled to deliver the much-needed Delahey Skate Park and gathering space for local junior skateboarders and scooter riders,” she said.

“Come along and join us to celebrate the newly upgraded skate park at Delahey Recreation Reserve, on Wednesday, September 11 at 10am-1pm.

“There will be plenty of family entertainment and a sausage sizzle, all at no charge.”

Entertainment on the day will include learn-to-skate sessions and build a deck workshops.

The $300,000 project is part of the council’s creating better parks policy.

Cr Congreve said providing the best quality parks continues to be a top priority for the council.

“Providing new and upgraded parks, skate parks, playgrounds and open spaces is one of council’s focuses – we want to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy and that our city is a vibrant and liveable place for all,” she said.

“Great parks are good for our physical and mental health, and provide great spaces for children and families to get outdoors and explore together.

“We can’t wait to see everyone making the most of this fantastic park.”
