A SERIES of proposed changes to a Carrum Downs skate park are out for community consultation.

Local BMX rider Storm Ashby said that the changes mean that “there’s more flow now and we go higher and faster, so this will be way better.”

The proposed upgrades to the park are funded through a $200,000 grant from the state government.  The project was put forward for the Pick My Project grant program by Carrum Downs Secondary students Lachlan Gray-Kelly and Noah Douglas.

Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer said “it is great that the young people in our city are taking pride in the community and sharing ideas for the things they would like to see improved. I’d like to thank the state government for funding this project and I’m really proud that we’ve all been able to work together to see the plans through to this stage.”
