The first cement has been poured at the highly anticipated new skatepark being built on the Montrose Bay Foreshore Reserve.

Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said skateboarders were eagerly anticipating the completion of the new facility, which is now well underway.

“Contractors have begun pouring cement to create the ramps, bowls and features that skateboarders use as part of their sport,” she said.

“This project will create a skatepark with regional appeal and is expected to be an extremely popular asset for our community.”

Mayor Thomas, who inspected works last month, said the skatepark was designed in consultation with skateboarders and the broader community.

“Our recreation areas provide important infrastructure for our community,” she said.

“They give people the opportunity to lead active and healthy lives, connecting with other people and enjoying recreational activities.

“This skatepark development will add a significant asset to the popular Montrose Foreshore, and I know many people in our community are looking forward to being able to give it a try.”

Construction of the skate park is being funded through a mix of State and Federal Government grants and Council budget.

“Weather depending, we expect the skatepark to be completed within the next two months, and we can’t wait to welcome skateboarders from all over the region,” Mayor Thomas said.
