Non-potable water from treated effluent was used to pre-mix the concrete required for the project.

Herron was the ward councillor in 2014 when the proposal for this park emerged during discussions with the local community.

They have also discussed with the skateboard fraternity the revitalisation of the Woodstock Town Hall precinct, as part of the World Design Capital co-design ward project.

“It has been a fantastic journey to see how this Woodstock skateboard park has grown from being an idea to a reality which will benefit and empower our local talent. I want to thank the community, including the skateboarders, for sharing their valuable input relating to the location of the site, the planning, and in the design stages of the project. This project is a sterling example of the value of partnerships between local government and residents,” says Herron.

Suzette Little, the City’s Mayco member (North), says the park is a welcome asset for the community.

“Our communities need spaces such as this which promote healthy, active living, where young people can channel their energy into improving their talents while having fun in a safe environment­.

“I encourage our local skateboarders to make the most of this facility and to look after it so that more talent can be nurtured on these ramps,” says Little.

The Woodstock Town Hall precinct has already received some upgrades since 2014.

Upgrades include the paving of the area between the town hall, library and park with red brick and cobbles.

Additional parking bays will be added to the existing parking area adjacent to the Town Hall.
