Chifley Skate park now open
The highly anticipated addition to the Chifley Sports Reserve upgrade, Chifley Skate Park was officially opened on 17 December 2015 by Randwick Mayor Noel D'Souza
The skate park was designed and constructed in close consultation with the community and under the advice of professional skaters. The skate park is the second skate facility in Randwick City with another located at Maroubra Beach.
Hundreds of local skaters packed the skate park on opening day where there were free activities, a skate demonstration and food.
Mayor Noel D’Souza says he is pleased to be investing in the future of the local area and providing a high quality facility for the families and youth of the south.
“Skate parks are meeting and socialising places for young people. They are used by children and young adults of all ages and provide a healthy recreational activity.
“I’m very proud to be investing in the future of our area and pleased to see Chifley Sports Reserve continue its transformation into a high quality recreational facility.
“We are currently building two amenities buildings at the park and in 2016 we will start construction on the first all-abilities playground in Randwick catering specifically to the needs of children with disabilities.
“I hope the skate park will be a much loved facility by the community for decades to come,” said The Mayor.
Consultation has concluded
