PRMF grant to fund new Griffith Skate Park
23 April 2018
Work has begun on Griffith’s new skate park thanks to a $330,000 grant from the NSW Government’s Public Reserve Management Funds (PRMF) program.
The new skate park facility will include a skate bowl and plaza, social spaces and high quality landscaping. It will also cater to more users – from beginners through to advanced skateboarders, BMXers and WCMX (wheelchair) riders, and provide a safer and more inclusive space for all.
Minister for Lands and Forestry Paul Toole said the PRMF program is providing vital support for the development of Griffith’s youth precinct.
“The PRMF program provides support to Trust managers to maintain, protect and improve our Crown reserves for the benefit of the entire community,” Mr Toole said.
“The Griffith skate park is a perfect example of what we want to achieve with this funding. It will provide a genuine public benefit to the community, particularly for younger people in the region.”
Work on the skate park is expected to begin on 20 April and, weather permitting, should be finished by the end of June 2018.
