2018 Consultation and 2019 Report to Council
In August 2017, Council resolved to build a skate park in Bathurst Street Park, Greystanes. This resolution was contingent on Council receiving a $50,000 Community Building Partnership Grant. However, Council’s grant application was unsuccessful and the determination has now lapsed.
With this lapse and recent changes to Bathurst Street Park, including the addition of new soccer fields, Council considered it prudent to investigate an alternative site and had added Darling Street to the options for the proposed Skate Park.
In light of the changed conditions, Council re-engaged with the community on the proposed location of Greystanes Skate Park.
Following this consultation, a final recommendation will be made to Council based on community feedback.
Consultation has now concluded. An engagement summary report can be found in the 'Relevant Documents' section of this page.
