Glenroy Skate Park project, former Northern Golf Driving Range site

Background

In 2013 Moreland City Council acquired approximately 1.8ha of land formally known as the Northern Golf Driving Range on Glenroy Road, Glenroy (west of Sewell Reserve). 

The Moreland Open Space Strategy (MOSS) 2012 - 2022 (PDF 5Mb), Sport and Physical Activity Strategy 2014-2018 (PDF 25Mb) and Council's Oxygen Phase 2 - Report and Action Plan 2015 - 2018 (PDF 3Mb) all nominate a skate park in Glenroy as a key action in contributing to enhancing the range of age groups that our open space facilities cater for across the municipality.

On 10 February 2016 Council endorsed the Northern Golf Course Driving Range as the preferred site for the Glenroy Skate Park, after extensive analysis of various sites across Glenroy.

Funds have been allocated in the current (2016-17) budget for community consultation, design and contract documentation of a new district scale skate facility for the Northern Golf Course Driving Range.

Council also endorsed that capital works funding be allocated to construction of the Glenroy Skate Park in 2017-18 financial year.

Draft master plan for the Former Northern Golf Driving Range

A draft master plan (PDF 959Kb) has been prepared for the Former Golf Driviing Range Site. The master plan proposes netball / multi courts, walking paths, tree planting, open areas for informal sports / training and the proposed skate park. A draft concept plan has also been prepared for the skate park. 

Consultation meetings

A pre design community consultation meeting was held on 27 April 2017, where approximately 40 people attended to discuss the preferred site and generate ideas for the skate park. 

A second consultation meeting (PDF 125Kb) will be held to discuss the draft master plan (PDF 959Kb) for the preferred site and draft concept design for the skate space.
