Moyne Shire Council has released the plans for an impressive new skate park in Port Fairy.
The new complex will be built in George Dodds Reserve on the southern edge of town, a short skate from the now outdated facility off Campbell Road.
The plans went through a detailed design and consultation process, with council setting up a project working group that included young people, local skaters, parents and business owners.
Moyne Shire Council director of community and cultural services Kevin Leddin said the wide-ranging process had improved the final design.
"The input provided by key stakeholders and participants throughout the consultation process has informed the final design, which takes into account the feedback from the community and provides something for everyone, supporting a variety of user styles and skill levels," he said.
The park will have a mix of ramps, rails and banks, as well as an eight foot bowl for more experienced board, BMX and scooter riders.
Mr Leddin said the response to the new plans had been unanimously positive and locals were eager for works to begin.
"Excitement is building around the release of the final concept and we are looking forward to moving on to the next stage of inviting contractors to tender for the design and construction, with completion of works by June 2023," he said.
"Port Fairy's new skate park will not only complement the existing facilities of the surrounding area, it will also provide more opportunities for social and recreational activities for locals and visitors alike."
