Bermagui Skate Park's first concrete laid

THE Bermagui Skate Park is one solid step closer to opening.

On Saturday, concrete started getting poured on the site by volunteers.

“We had such a great turnout of volunteers we were able to do 20 metres,” committee treasurer Aimee White said.

She estimated they are now one-third of the way through concreting, and hopes to do another load sometime this week, depending on the weather.

The park will open by the next school holidays, and Ms White said it could hopefully be open in four weeks.

Progress is on target, or nearly so, with construction aimed to be completed in the next three to four weeks.

Ms White said there hadn’t been as many volunteers as she would like for the “nitty-gritty things” to be completed.

Once the outskirts are done, then the bowl will be sprayed by professionals.

Ms White said as there were so many kids in the area who are so excited for the park to be open, an adult was needed to look after them on Saturday as the concrete was being poured.

“They were just so excited they want to be over there and be part of it as well,” she said.

The final plan is for the skate park to be open to all skaters, from learners to the experienced.

Ms White thinks it will be like no other park on the South Coast. 

“At the moment it is all going to plan,” project manager Jim Callaghan said.

“I’d like to thank all the volunteers who helped out so far, and all those who have donated.”
