Have your say on the Worrell Reserve youth plaza and skate park in Emerald

Published: 25 July 2022

Cardinia Shire Council is calling on the passionate skaters, BMX, and scooter riders to have their say on the Worrell Reserve youth plaza and skate park in Emerald.

Council has allocated $150,000 to undertake the detailed design while the Victorian Government announced $1 million towards the project subject to a funding agreement application by Council.

The Worrell Recreation Reserve is a key open space centrally located in the Emerald township. Following the endorsement of the Masterplan in June 2020, the next stage is the design and then implementation of the youth plaza and skate park as a result of the Victorian Government funding announcement.

The Worrell Reserve youth plaza and skate park will provide the community with a family friendly multi use recreation space for skateboarding, BMX, and scooter riding.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Jeff Springfield is encouraging the community to have their say on the Worrell Reserve youth plaza and skate park in Emerald.

“This is your chance to help shape the new youth plaza and skate park to support increased use and overall enjoyment of the park by locals,” Cr Springfield said.

“We want to hear what you would like to see included in the project and hear about how you would use it into the future. This information will be key to developing the draft concept plans for the new youth plaza and skate park.

“This project will improve access to sporting and social recreation opportunities for the children and young people of Emerald as well as the surrounding Hills community.

“The Emerald community through the support of key community groups have been instrumental in seeking local and state government funding to bring forward the much-anticipated youth plaza and skate park element of the Masterplan.”

Consultation closes 14 August 2022.

Council will conduct further community engagement as the project progresses and will come back to the community to seek feedback on the proposed concept design once it has been created.
