About the Project

Bass Coast Shire Council awarded a contract to Grind Projects Pty Ltd for the construction of the Skate Park and renewal of the existing playspace at the Kilcunda Foreshore.

The design for the skate park and playspace has been developed over the past 12 months, in consultation with a working group of local residents and the Kilcunda Community Association. The accessible design includes a skate park with a bowl and roll in for beginners, a deep end for more advanced skaters, slappy kerb, water fall and pier seven ledge. The facility features a shelter with seating and an accessible ramp entrance from both the Bass Coast Rail Trail and the foreshore.

The playspace includes a natural feeling space with timber and rock features, along with traditional play elements for climbing, sliding and swinging. Additional trees and garden beds will be planted to act as landscape buffers around the play and skate areas. Seating, paths, a water fountain, bins and bike racks will also be installed.

  • A new local skatepark
  • Demolition of the existing playspace and construction of new nature based play equipment

The total project cost is in the order of $720,000.

Contributions to this project were from:

  • State Government's Sports and Recreation Victoria fund $250,000; and
  • Council $470,000.
