A $1.4 MILLION makeover to Chelsea’s Bicentennial Skate Park has skaters, bikers and rollers of all ages flocking there for a little action.

The park and youth precinct, on the corner of Thames Promenade and Scotch Parade, has a new skating area, multi-court arena and timber climbing pole.

New lighting has also been added and pathways improved to ensure the area is safe and accessible. Parents can watch on from the new park seating under shelters and shade sails. 

The mayor Cr David Eden said Kingston Council was pleased to invest in the park upgrades.

“This fantastic new skate park will give local teens and youngsters a fun, active, positive activity to entertain them and serve as a community meeting place,” he said.

The project was funded by Kingston Council with support from the state government Departments of Justice and Department of Human Services.
