Skatepark upgrade

After initial design concept meetings with the Franklin Local Board, Park Sports and Recreation Council, Skatepark designers and local skateboarders, an initial upgrade design was created and approved to a cost of $65,000.
While lobbyers for the upgrade are thrilled with the result, they will still require more funds to create the longer term dream design.
Local skateboarders have set up a Facebook page, named Waiuku Skatepark, for communications about fundraising.
“This is a great opportunity for the Local Board and the community to come together to achieve a much wanted upgrade of the skatepark. With the determination of the local youth and their positive attitude and offer of possible assistance from local clubs, I am confident we will be able to achieve something good for Waiuku,” said Andy Baker, Franklin Local Board Chairperson.
