SPECIALIST builders have moved onto Cundy Park and expect to complete a $160,000 upgrade of the Myrtleford Skate Park in four weeks.
Yackandandah’s Precision Skate Parks started work on Monday having recently completed a major project at Macksville on the NSW north coast.
Their list of projects stretched from Yamba to Kilmore, Wagga to West Wyalong.
Alpine Shire Council said there would be disruptions to the accessibility of Cundy Park, particularly from Standish Street, during the four to six-week construction period but use of the playground, barbecue and public toilets wouldn’t be affected.
Project manager Francine Stacey said Myrtleford’s skateboarding community would soon be enjoying a new, state-of-the-art facility designed with their wants and needs in mind.
“We’ve consulted extensively with the community and, where possible, we have endeavoured to incorporate the feedback into the plans for the park,” she said.
