About the project.
Graham Street Skate Park (also known as Port Melbourne Skate Park) is located in Port Melbourne underneath the Graham Street overpass. Due to age, and general wear from use, the current skate facilities are approaching the end of their useful life.
Following community consultation back in 2016, we committed to upgrading this space to improve our communities' access to quality recreational facilities, and to improve connections through and around the site. In 2020, we received $250,000 of grant funding from Sport and Recreation Victoria to support these works.
We want to reconnect with the community to ensure we are delivering a facility that meets your expectations.
We want to engage with the local skate community and develop a design that reflects the diversity of people who use the park. To do this we have engaged a specialist team of consultants, led by Grind Projects Pty Ltd, with design involvement from Playce Pty Ltd and Baseplate.
We want to hear from our local skate community.
Calling all skateboarders, BMXers, scooter riders, roller skaters bladers and community members! We want you to help us create a design that reflects community needs and interests, feels welcoming, and helps skaters of all ages and abilities improve their skills.
We'd like to know:
- What name you use when talking about this space
- The types of elements and features that you'd like to see in the park
- How the park can cater for users of all skill-levels
- How the space can support spectators, parents and carers
- How people travel to the skate park (this will help assist with Council’s broader work in the Port Melbourne area)
- Whether there are any concerns with the removal of six (6) unrestricted carparks (to increase the park size)
What you tell us will inform the concept design. We'll also consider:
- A range of skate styles
- Different abilities
