The long-awaited Riverstone skate and youth space recently opened for skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes, in time for the summer holidays.
Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP joined Greenway MP Michelle Rowland (pictured below) to view the new facilities in Riverstone Park.
Mayor Bali stated “young people in this rapidly growing community have been waiting eagerly for this skate park and now they’ll be able enjoy the new amenities right through summer.
“With the support of the Member for Greenway, Michelle Rowland, Council secured a $400,000 grant from the Australian Government to deliver the new skate park in Riverstone.
“The skate park was due to officially open in December but bad weather held up the construction.The workers took up the challenge and were determined to have the space ready for the holidays.
“We’ll hold a big official opening event this year, but the important thing is that kids will be able to use the park right now – right through the holidays.”
The active recreation facility has an exciting range of features for skaters, scooter riders and BMX riders.
Rowland commented “the local community has worked for a long time to make this skate park happen.It is encouraging to see the active recreation facility designed as a multi-use space for the whole community. I am sure the young people in Riverstone and surrounding areas will make good use of this space."
Mayor Bali added "our teams worked with design experts, ran a community design workshop with young people and sought community feedback to come up with a design suitable for different users.
“This park is located in one of the fastest growing areas in our City and young families make up a very large portion of the community."
