Two people in high vis vests talk inspect a skate park bowlThe first stage of the West Melton Community Park is due before Christmas, but a small area may face delays.

The Council is still hoping to have the first stage of the community park at the West Melton Domain open before Christmas. However, there is the potential a small part of this area may have to be completed in the new year due to delays caused by the weather and difficulty accessing construction material due to high demand.

The first stage of the community park next to the West Melton Community will be the skate park, including a bowl, ramps, ledges and a pump track. A new playground, sheltered barbecue area and half-court basketball court will be built in the new year, along with landscaping to help create a space for the whole community to enjoy.

The Council is also investigating an incident where someone broke into the construction area and skated on the wet concrete. This risked causing significant delays and extra costs to the project. The Council is looking at solutions to prevent further vandalism that could delay when people are able to enjoy the park.
