The Masterton skatepark is a place where we can enjoy and ride our skateboards, BMX bikes and scooters. It is popular with everyone from beginners to ‘the pros’.
Over the last year we have been part of a community-led, council-supported project to see how we can improve the skatepark. We have worked with the skatepark community and skatepark design specialists to come up with exciting design plans for a revamped skatepark. Based on our design plans, it will cost around $1.1 million for a full upgrade of the skatepark.
Council is excited by the potential of this project that could provide new experiences for our local families as well as becoming a regional attraction for visitors. We are willing to contribute funding to help make this happen.
We know the Skatepark is important to our community and we think this project has great potential. That’s why our preferred option is to contribute $500,000 to kick start the funding. Our community would need to get on board and fundraise the rest. This could be through funding applications, grants or even crowd-funding.
