Worrell Reserve – Skate Park | Emerald
The Worrell Recreation Reserve is a key open space centrally located in the Emerald township. Following the endorsement of the Masterplan in June 2020, and completion of key elements of the Masterplan, the next stage is the implementation of the youth plaza and skate park.
The Worrell Reserve youth plaza and skate park will provide the community with a uniquely designed and family friendly multi use recreation space including a skate park that is supported by the existing surrounding facilities. The project responds to the significant growth in the interest and participation of action sports including skateboarding, BMX, scooter, and mountain bike riding.
The Emerald community through the support of key community groups have been instrumental in seeking local and state government funding to bring forward the much-anticipated youth plaza and skate park element of the Masterplan.
The draft concept has been designed to include the Top 5 Skate Elements that were highlighted during the community consultation process and the overall design also takes into consideration the Top 5 Youth Plaza Elements:
The Top 5 Skate Elements from the community consultation were:
- Hips & corners
- Enclosed bowl
- Mini ramp
- Quarter pipe; and
- Unique element.
Council and the Victorian Government have jointly funded this project.
A concept design has been approved by stakeholders.
Detailed design of stages 1 and 2 is now underway.
- Detailed designs are underway
- Stage one of the project is expected to be completed by the end of June 2024.
