A new exciting skate addition is proposed for the existing Loyola Reserve play space in 2019/20. Wyndham City Council will be commencing concept designs shortly and we will be seeking your valuable input.
Why are we developing a new skate addition?
During the development of the Skate BMX and Bike Facility Strategy in 2013, children from the local area and local schools advocated for an easily accessible skate park to be constructed in the Werribee area. Providing access to places to skate in Wyndham is supported by Wyndham’s 2040 Community Vision stating:
Wyndham has a vision for people and community that as a municipality it will be a family friendly city, listening to and learning from the diversity of residents (including young people); and
Wyndham residents to have opportunities to stay fit and healthy (Wyndham 2040, pg 11).
Furthermore, the Wyndham Sports Strategy 2017 confirms the community's demand for skate, scooter and bike opportunities throughout the city and the importance for places for the whole community.
Loyola Reserve is situated in a residential part of Werribee, with great access by foot, bike or skateboard, as well as public transport nearby.
The skate park is proposed to be a place for beginner and intermediate skater/scooter users including young children, families and people who are learning the sport and keeping active. The design will complement the existing park and amenities at this modern play space.
