New haven for local skaters

New haven for local skaters

It might be hard to imagine now, but by the end of the year the new skatepark in Lawes Street East Maitland will be a haven for skaters with construction now underway.

Once complete the skatepark will feature a large skate bowl and street elements, along with three small all weather shelters, social seating spaces, a water bubbler and an area that supports spill out spaces for events and competitions.

The design itself is a result of community feedback with skaters, so it’s great that local riders of all levels will soon be able to use the new facility.

If all goes well, construction of the skatepark will be completed in November this year.
