Work is underway on the new skatepark and car park at Capella Drive Reserve in Hallett Cove. Working hours will be 7am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Construction will take approximately 6 months with completion expected in late 2021. For details see the Notice of Works flyer.

Capella Reserve

Consultation for the overall plan was undertaken in October 2019. A pre-design consultation was undertaken in August 2020 to help design the skate park.

Consultation on the draft concept via Making Marion occurred from 11 September to 5 October 2020. A community drop in session was held on 19 September 2020 at Capella Reserve.

Feedback from the consultation has informed the development of a Concept Design.

Final community feedback was sought on the concept design in November 2020.

Council has received matching funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program to construct the skate park in mid 2021.
