Work on town’s skate park to start soon
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.
