There are four skate parks in our Shire located in Beechworth, Rutherglen, Yackandandah and Tangambalanga,
The Yackandandah Skate Park is currently undergoing a redevelopment thanks to a $100,000 grant from Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV).
Construction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2018.
The project is taking place on the current site, which is accessible to all ages and visible to the wider community and passing traffic.
Young people worked with our Youth Officer, particularly in the scoping stage of this project to undertake surveys, onsite workshops and consultation, including supporting a listening post at the Yackandandah Folk Festival.
The Council is providing $155,000 to complete the project, at a total cost of $255,000.
