‘Drop In’ to view final skate park plans
Skateboarding fans and members of the Dimboola and Rainbow communities will have the opportunity to view conceptual drawings and discuss plans for the new skate parks in their towns.

The construction of both will soon be put out to tender, with the Dimboola Recreation Reserve and the old primary school site in Rainbow, now known and Oasis Rainbow in King Street being the chosen locations for these new community facilities

Jointly funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria and Hindmarsh Shire Council, these skate parks are expected to offer an exciting new challenge for local skateboarders, bladers and scooter riders.

In conjunction with previous community consultations to discuss skate park concepts with local youth, Council has worked closely with skate park design specialists en:locus to ensure the design of the new park captures the imagination of local participants.

Council will host a community information ‘drop in’ session from 3.30 to 6.00pm at the Dimboola Community Centre in Wimmera St on Thursday July 27 2017 for anyone who is interested in the development to learn more about what is to be built, whilst a similar session will be held in Rainbow between 3.30 and 6.00pm at the Mecca Meeting Room in Federal St on Tuesday 25 July 2017

Hindmarsh Shire Council Mayor Cr Debra Nelson said “This will be a great opportunity for skateboard and scooter enthusiasts and the general community to gain a better understanding of this exciting project for Dimboola and I encourage anyone interested to attend”.

Further information explaining proposed timeframes for tendering and construction will also be available and Council staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the project.
