In line with key objectives identified in Wyndham’s Quality Community Plan (2007), the planning for the provision of facilities to service the Tarneit, and greater Wyndham Community are currently being undertaken. Concurrently, in 2013, Wyndham City Council adopted the Wyndham Skate, BMX and Bike Strategy in order to assess existing skate parks, and propose future facilities to ensure user demand and requirements were met. One of the key recommendations from this Strategy was to develop a Regional Facility, with Baden Powell Drive Reserve deemed the most accessible and adequately sized.
In September of 2015, Enlocus were engaged, to work together with Wyndham City to develop concept designs and contract documentation for the Baden Powell Drive Reserve.
The Vision For Baden Powell Drive
The Baden Powell Dr Reserve will be the recreational and social heart of the Tarneit community. Regional level skate/bmx/scooter terrain will be complemented by active and passive recreational spaces, while a unique shelter structure will provide for events, incorporating AV and toilet amenities.
Prior to the 2016 holiday season the Project Team was preparing all the detailing and documentation needed for the construction of the project.
Once all the documents were ready the project went out to tender to find a skilled Builder who could construct the reserve.
The Project Team is currently reviewing and evaluating all the submissions and are hoping to award the contract in early March with construction to follow after.
