Skate And Bounce In Corinella

Bass+Coast+Shire+Council+has+installed+a+concrete+surface+at+the+Harold+Hughes+Reserve+in+Corinella+suitable+for+the+mobile+skate+park+and+basketball+infrastructure.

Harold Hughes Reserve in Corinella will be home to a new skateboard and basketball pad in coming weeks.

A project funded through Bass Coast Shire Council will provide a smooth concrete surface suitable for use of the mobile skate park and include a brand new basketball pole, backboard and ring, consistent with those installed at other venues across the Shire.

The expected project cost for the upgrade is $40,000.

The excavation and construction works will be undertaken over the next two weeks, meaning small disruptions to users of this facility and the neighbouring Corinella Bowls Club and public accessed tennis courts.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, said these works are among several taking place in the area.

“Council recently installed three portable Frisbee Golf foundations to be ready for when the equipment is shared in Corinella,” Cr Brown said.

“Additionally, Council has also undertaken maintenance works at the public tennis courts, including replacing of nets and weed management.”

The timing of this new project will see the completion of the works prior to the return of the mobile skate ramp and portable Frisbee Golf equipment on Friday, 24 July.
