New skate space for Monbulk

Concept designs have been released for planned Monbulk skatepark upgrades. Picture: YARRA RANGES COUNCIL.

Keen skaters, scooter-riders and BMX goers will soon have a new stomping ground, with exciting upgrades planned for Monbulk Skate and Scooter Park.

Yarra Ranges Council first asked the community for feedback and design ideas in July 2020 and have recently finalised concept designs.

The new skatepark at Monbulk Recreation Reserve will keep the existing half pipe, while new features such as a street section, flow area and intermediate bowl will be added.

Council is now asking community members to provide feedback on the new design and vote on four different element options.

Council wants to hear whether the community wants a rail element, a parking block, a transition funbox or a hip bank at the site.

This feedback will be used to finalise the design of the park and confirm either spinning or rocking elements in the final designs.

Once designs have been completed, Council will program the skatepark to be constructed.

It is expected the project will be fully complete by 2022.
