New community precinct and skate park comes to life

Works are progressing well on the major project to further improve and enhance the Endeavour Hills Community Precinct, with the project expected to be completed and open for the community to enjoy by early next year.

The $3.36 million project is coming to life in the heart of Endeavour Hills, which on completion will deliver a new and improved regional skate park, new playground, terraced landscaping, lawn area for events and installation of gymnastics and parkour equipment.

The playground equipment is now installed, the skate park is starting to take shape and trees have been planted for the forest walk.

The Whale Tale sculpture has been refurbished and now sits proudly on top of the headland overlooking the skate and play spaces.

Four Oaks Ward Councillors Rosalie Crestani and Milic Gilic said they were thrilled to see the project developing in the town centre.

“This is a highly-anticipated project amongst our community, particularly for those with an interest in skating, so we’re pleased to let people know that the project is tracking well and we expect to open it for the community to enjoy early next year,” Cr Crestani said.

“The skate park element will cater for beginners through to experienced skaters and scooter riders, extending over 865m2 of skateable terrain, including a street course and various bowls.”

“This project will continue to transform Endeavour Hill’s town centre and we can’t wait to open it to our community in the not too distant future,” Cr Gilic added.

“It’s our hope that once complete, this precinct will be become a hub for the Endeavour Hills community to meet, socialise, skate and play and be an inviting place that everyone can enjoy.”

Council is investing $1.68m into the project, which is being matched with a $1.68m grant from the State Government through the Growing Suburbs Fund.

Stay tuned later in the year for more details on when the precinct will open.
