Brunswick skate and BMX facility - Project works
The skate park was formally opened by at a celebratory launch on Friday 9 October 2015.
Moreland City Council has built a new skate and BMX park in Clifton Park, Brunswick. This facility has expanded the active uses at this popular park, encouraging a different group of local users into this vibrant space.
The original plan was to construct a clover-style bowl and street plaza section in Clifton Park near the existing basketball half-court on Albert Street.
The original site on Albert Street had the bowl situated within 2 metres of a neighbouring factory. As Council is currently reviewing the future use of industrial land across Merri-bek (which includes the neighbouring factory land) it has been decided that the original site proposed for the skate park may not be the most appropriate, and a new location on Victoria Street is being investigated.
The new site is for the facility to be located in the north-east corner of Clifton Park, fronting Victoria Street. The new skate park features a clover-style bowl (1.2, 2.4 and 3.3 metre depths) with a small street section.
Budget and timelines
Budget: $500k for design and construction, including funding from Sport and Recreation Victoria.
Timeline: Construction commenced June 2015 and was complete August.
