With the new St Leonards skate park now fully complete and open to the public, Geelong council is seeking community feedback on the upgraded facility.

The skate park was redeveloped last year with works concluding in December, and now boasts a range of features for skateboarders, BMX enthusiasts, scooter riders and inline skaters to enjoy.

The $670,000 upgrade was delivered thanks to $310,000 from the City of Greater Geelong and $360,000 of funding through the state government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Stimulus Program.

Geelong mayor Trent Sullivan said community input mattered even once projects such as the skate park were complete.

“We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the redeveloped St Leonards Skate Park,” Mayor Sullivan said.

“Your insights will help us better understand the impact of the upgrades and guide future enhancements across our wide range of skate facilities.”

Bellarine Ward councillor Elise Wilkinson said the council was committed to creating vibrant and engaging spaces for residents.

“Whether you have been a long-time skate park user or are excited to explore the new additions, your feedback will contribute to the ongoing improvement of our recreational spaces,” Cr Wilkinson said.

“We encourage everyone to participate in the evaluation survey.”
