Cardinia Shire Council has awarded a tender to design and build the municipality’s new Koo Wee Rup skate park to company, Baseplate and Grind Projects.
Council says Grind Projects are one of Australia’s premier skate park builders and Baseplate were responsible for designing the Gembrook Skate Park in 2018.
“This is the exciting first step in getting this project off the ground,” said Cardinia Shire Mayor, Brett Owen.
“Soon we’ll be looking to the community for ideas about what features they’d like to see included in the new skate park.”
Westernport Councillor Kaye Cameron also welcomed the news.
“The community has been patiently waiting for the upgrade of this much-loved skate park and we’re excited to kick the project off with the tender now finalised,” said Cr Cameron.
“The skatepark will remain open over the busy summer period with construction expected to commence in autumn.”
