Vic­to­rian skate fa­cil­ity spe­cial­ist CONVIC has been awarded the ten­der for de­sign and con­struc­tion of Onslow’s new skate park.

The com­pany was pre­vi­ously re­spon­si­ble for con­struc­tion of the Parabur­doo and Tom Price skate parks and the South Hed­land youth space.

Shire of Ash­bur­ton pres­i­dent Kerry White said the Shire looked for­ward to work­ing with CONVIC to bring the much-needed and highly an­tic­i­pated fa­cil­ity to com­ple­tion.

“Award­ing the ten­der means res­i­dents will start to see ac­tiv­ity on site as the ground work prepa­ra­tions be­gin,” she said.

“The new skate park will be a wel­come ad­di­tion to the Onslow com­mu­nity.”

Ten chil­dren from Onslow Pri­mary School have signed up to help de­sign a few fea­tures of the park.

The new skate park will be built on the site of the old bas­ket­ball courts and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of the year.
