The skate park and BMX dirt jumps at Wotton Reserve are being relocated to make way for the future Morley train station car park.

The City has engaged with the local community and stakeholders to choose the most suitable location for the new skate park. In April 2021, at the Ordinary Council Meeting it was decided the facility would be relocated to Wotton Reserve (north).

In July 2021, The City appointed Emerge Associates, in conjunction with Skate Sculpture and Common Ground Trails, to develop a detailed site concept plan that will incorporate skate and BMX facilities, community infrastructure and car parking within Wotton Reserve. Emerge sourced feedback from the City's Skate and Bike Development Advisory Committee and users of the reserve to inform the development of the draft design. The final detailed concept plan will inform the future design and construction of the new Wotton skate park facility. The final concept designs can be found in the document library located on this page.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 24 August 2021, Council endorsed Concept 4, as detailed in this report, as the final design to be developed to replace the skate and BMX facilities within Wotton Reserve. Requests the Chief Executive Officer to invite tender submissions from suitably qualified and experienced suppliers for the final design and construction of the relocated skate and BMX facility within Wotton Reserve. Delegate’s authority to the Chief Executive Officer in accordance with S5.42 of the Local Government Act 1995 to appoint a contractor following the required tender process, subject to the tender not exceeding the available budget. The minutes from this council meeting can be viewed in the Documents section of this page and on the City's website.

Tender process

During September / October the City prepared and advertised a Design and Construct Tender to suitably qualified and experienced suppliers to submit.

The City appointed MG Group in December 2021 to deliver on behalf of the City, including sub-contractors, preparing the detailed design and construction of the Skate and BMX Facilities.

Community Engagement

In July, the City and Emerge Associates, in conjunction with Skate Sculpture and Common Ground Trails, undertook community engagement to inform the draft concept plan. In addition to meeting with key stakeholders, including the Morley Windmills Clubs, the broader community engagement occurred between 23 July - 1 August 2021 where the community had an opportunity to view the draft concept plan, complete a survey and attend a pop-up session and skate event. At the pop up session the draft concept design, aerial images and 3D images of the draft skate facility were presented to the community to make suggestions/comments. The information received was be used to inform the development of the whole of park, Skate Park and BMX Jumps design located within Wotton Reserve.

The community engagement outcomes can be viewed in the document library on this page.

What's next

Detailed design is due to commence in January 2022 and construction is anticipated to commence on site by no later than March 2022.
