Ramped up and ready to roll at Delahey Skate Park

Summary

The new Delahey Skate Park is ramped up and ready to roll at Delahey Recreation Reserve.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Lucinda Congreve said Council was thrilled to deliver this much needed skate park and gathering space for local junior skateboard and scooter riders.

“The Delahey skate park was completed in August and officially opens today, with skating activities and a sausage sizzle, at no charge, from 10am-1pm.

“The $300,000 project is part of Council’s multi-award winning Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan, where almost $32 million was invested to upgrade and create 105 parks across Brimbank.

“In previous years we installed new fitness stations at the Delahey Recreation Reserve, in addition to extensive tree planting, seating and better path access at the reserve – so this new skate park is ‘the icing on the cake’ for the community.

“Providing new and upgraded parks, playgrounds and open spaces is one of Council’s key objectives to ensure that Brimbank is a vibrant and liveable community and access to well-planned public spaces can deliver positive social and health outcomes for Brimbank.

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

“Come and join us at the opening, which has been made possible through the collaboration of Year 11 VCAL students from Copperfield College, Delahey campus and the Delahey Community Centre,” said Cr Congreve.
