Funded jointly by Council and the State Government through the Growing Suburbs Fund, the $3.16 Million skatepark and play space at Endeavour Hills is set to open as upgrades is near to completion.

Four Oaks Ward Councillors Rosalie Crestani and Milla Gilic said this facilities will be a great asset to the community, especially local youth.
“We know that residents can’t wait to try out the new play space and skate park and we are working as quickly as possible to get the finishing touches completed so we can open it to the community,” Cr Crestani said.
“An official opening will also be arranged in the new year and we will notify residents when a date has been set so everyone can join in the celebration of this fantastic community space.”
