Gulgong Skate Park Officially Opened
The newly redeveloped Gulgong Skate Park was officially opened by Mayor of the Mid-Western Region Des Kennedy today.
Earlier this year, Council engaged with users of the existing park who provided a ‘wish-list’ for the new facility.
These submissions were incorporated into design concepts that were placed on public exhibition with the community voting on their preferred design.
Mayor of the Mid-Western Region, Des Kennedy said Council received a positive number of submissions from the community towards the project.
“Gulgong Skate Park is a fantastic example of Council and the community working together to achieve a great outcome for the region,” Cr Kennedy said.
“This will be a well-used active space for generations of children and young people to come.”
The new concrete-based park includes half pipe, grind rail and spine.
Shaded seating is due to be installed at the park in coming weeks followed by landscaping in the New Year.
