*** March 2021 Update – Skate Park is OPEN ***
We had to pop down and visit the fantastic skate park as soon as it opened and boy were we impressed! To quote our resident skate guru Scotty…..”Wicked bro, Fully sick, best skatepark in the South. Suitable for all abilities. 2 great adjoining bowls with spine. Great plaza with multiple features for growing abilities.” That sounds like the tick of approval for us! What a fantastic start to this soon to be epic facility for the south!
Big news for the southerners with the announcement of a huge development at Morton Road (Corner of Flaxmill Road) at Christie Downs. This area is already home to baseball, so this development is going to complement it superbly. With the train station right next door, it will be very easy to pop on the train and visit this new complex once it is finished.
The $3.1 million Morton Road Sports and Community Hub in Christie Downs is expected to commence construction in early 2021. It will include a skate park, multi-use tennis/netball courts, adventure play space, seating, shelters, barbecue facilities, basketball half-court, irrigated lawns and new toilets.
Can’t wait for this one!
