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.

Consultation

The design aspect of the skate park facility will consist of a detailed consultation process with the local community, schools and sporting clubs. This is expected to take place early 2017.

Following this, a report on the concept design and community consultation will be presented at a future Council meeting for approval prior to proceeding with construction.
