Port Kennedy is getting a new skate park!

The existing skate park at Veterans Memorial Park will be demolished in early February and the new space will be built on the same site.

In a first for the City the new skate park will combine bowl, street and plaza skate elements.

The infrastructure also includes half-court basketball, bike racks, water fountains and shade shelters. 

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said the new skate park has been designed to cater for all skill levels. 

“The new skate park at Veterans Memorial Park in Port Kennedy will be a great venue for skate competitions and events, in addition to being a family friendly recreation space,” Mayor Sammels said. 

“When it came to designing the skate park the City carefully considered the thoughts of those most likely to use the new facility. 

“Feedback from skate clinics, workshops at local schools, engagement with junior councilors and the community helped to shape the elements that will be included.”
