August 15, 2011
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green will officially open the Currarong Skate Park at a special ceremony taking place tomorrow, Tuesday 16 August from 12pm.
A partnership between the Currarong Progress Association and Council, the $123,000 facility has the ability to cater to skaters of all levels and abilities.
Councillor Paul Green said the Currarong Skate Park provided a fantastic new facility for the area’s youth saying the park was designed to fit in with the natural landscape of the area.
“The completion of this skate park is a tremendous reward for the hard work and persistence of the Currarong youth,” said Clr Green.
“This project began in 2002 when the area’s youth began collecting signatures on a petition calling for a skate park in the area.
“The Currarong Progress Association became involved in 2005, writing a formal letter of support and then later managing the project once funding was secured.”
“This Currarong Skate Park is a terrific example of what can be done when an entire community gets behind a specific project.”
“I would like to congratulate the many volunteers who helped construct the facility, the Currarong Progress Association and the area’s youth for working hard to achieve such a great piece of local infrastructure.”
