Design concepts for a new $1 million Eaton Skatepark have been unveiled by the Shire of Dardanup.

Work by Shire Staff will now begin on applications for external funding support to convert the designs to reality within two years.

The design was created by Skate Sculpture and New Line Skate Parks following a series of hands-on community design workshops with skatepark users.

The new skate facility will be located on Council Drive, West of Glen Huon Drive. It will be more than twice the size of the existing skatepark.

As well as skate plaza, bowl and flow zone with varying levels of difficulty to accommodate all ages and levels of ability, the new Eaton Skatepark plan includes a bmx pump track.

Dardanup Shire Council endorsed the designs at its meeting on Wednesday, August 14 along with plans to submit a $250,000 funding application to the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries (LGSCI).
