Wheels in motion for Cessnock Regional Skatepark


Work is currently underway on the highly-anticipated Cessnock Regional Skatepark at Mount View Park.

The project, made possible by $1 million in funding from the Australian Government’s Investing in our Communities program along with developer contributions, includes the construction of a bowl and transition elements, as well as associated infrastructure.

Once completed, the skatepark will be the first regional-quality skate facility in the Cessnock LGA, providing a youth-friendly space to meet the growing needs of young people across the region.

It’ll also offer a unique experience with features that can be used by riders of all skill levels.

Cessnock City mayor Jay Suvaal said he was delighted to see the project in motion.

“I’m looking forward to delivering this quality facility for our residents, as well as visitors, to enjoy,” he stated.

“This will be the fifth skatepark we’ve delivered for our community.

“But, the first of its kind in the area.

“I’m sure it will be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

“This project also aims to deliver community infrastructure that’s accessible and, once complete, will increase opportunities for wheeled sports participants to develop their skills, which is just fantastic.”

During construction works, one shelter will be unavailable and temporary fencing is installed to block off the area.

Carparking is set to be retained throughout the project.

Works are scheduled to be completed in November, subject to weather.
