Chidlow residents are skating their way through summer. Construction of the $350,000 Chidlow Village Green Skate Park project was recently completed, just in time for the school holidays.

Shire of Mundaring President, James Martin, said the skate park was designed in consultation with the Chidlow Ratepayers Association.

“Local residents have been working towards this project for three years and the Shire was pleased to collaborate with community members to deliver it,” he said.

“From skateboarders to scooter riders and bike riders to spectators, the 50m by 15m facility offers different levels of challenge. There is something for everyone!”

The skate park was funded by a $150,000 grant from the Federal Government and a $30,000 grant from the State Government. The balance was contributed by the Shire.

Final landscaping works – including a shade shelter, seating, grass, shrubs and trees – will be completed in coming months.
