TWO facilities in Carrum Downs have received welcomed state government boosts.

Sandfield Reserve Skate Park will soon be revamped with more safety measures after a $200,000 upgrade was approved by the state government.

Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “this is great news for our young people, giving them a safer and better skate park to enjoy and practice new skills. Thanks to Noah and Lachlan and all the kids, particularly at Carrum Downs Secondary College, for getting behind this project.”

The state government also approved an $85,000 grant for the Lyrebird Community Centre for the purchase of new audiovisual equipment and furniture.

The centre provides courses and programs to people from early childhood to senior citizens.

“The Lyrebird Community Centre provides invaluable services to the local community and this much needed upgrade will help staff to deliver an even better experience for the whole community,” Ms Kilkenny said.
