Bailey Reserve Skate Park redevelopment

Glen Eira City Council is currently refining the design to undertake a redevelopment of Bailey Reserve Skate Park.

Community Consultation was held during November 2016, thank you to all those who provided valuable input to the redevelopment. The feedback gathered from the consultation is being used in partnership with Council’s Open Space Strategy to develop the new Bailey Reserve Skate Park.

To assist with finalising the design and preparing for construction, Council will be undertaking soil testing at the site. To ensure the safety of all users, the park will be closed on Wednesday 8 February between 7am and 5pm.

The Bailey Reserve Skate Park redevelopment is an action from Council’s 2016–17 Budget.

Bailey Reserve Skate Park

Constructed by the City in 2000, with the assistance of a grant from Sport and Recreation Victoria, the skate facility at Bailey Reserve is a great venue for the young people of Glen Eira.

Skate park designer and former skating champion Tony Hallam was assisted by about 30 young people from Glen Eira, aged 8 to 17, who worked with him to create this much-needed facility.

People meet regularly with their BMX bikes, rollerblades and skate boards to try their skills on the low level street circuit. The facility has a number of skateable elements including a concrete pad, ramps, quarter pipes, grind poles and fun box.
