Have your say: Worrell Reserve skate park and proposed youth plaza
Cardinia Shire Council is calling on skaters, BMX, and scooter riders to provide feedback on the draft concept design for Worrell Reserve skate park and the proposed youth plaza in Emerald.
The Worrell Reserve skate park and proposed youth plaza will provide the community with a family friendly, multi-use recreation space for skateboarding, BMX, and scooter riding.
The draft concept plan for the skate park includes:
- Hips and corners
- Enclosed deep bowl
- Mini ramp
- Quarter pipe
Other features in the draft concept plan for the skate park and proposed youth plaza include:
- Proposed MUGA (multi-use games area) and connecting paths to the skate park
- Proposed Wifi in the shelter located next to the MUGA and skate park
- Proposed terraced seating
- Bins and signs
- Planting and shade trees
- Shelter; and
- Drinking fountain.
Cardinia Shire Mayor Cr Tammy Radford encourages the community to provide their feedback on the draft concept plan.
“I thank everyone who provided feedback in round one – your feedback has helped council develop the draft concept plan. You can now view the draft concept plan and provide your feedback to help shape final plans for a new skate park and the proposed youth plaza,” she said.
Ranges Ward Councillor Jeff Springfield said council adopted a Masterplan for Worrell Reserve in June 2020.
“The Masterplan outlines plans for the creation of a skate park and youth plaza. Funding for the development of the concept plan for the skate park and youth plaza has been allocated in Council’s 2022/23 capital works budget. The state government has provided $1 million towards the construction of the project’s skate park elements. Construction of the youth plaza elements are subject to future funding allocations.
“I’d encourage the local community to check out the draft concept plans and get involved!”
