  • State Government allocates $2.5 million to relocate ageing Wotton Reserve Skate Park and BMX track.
  • Popular community facility to be relocated to make way for the METRONET Morley Station multi-storey car park and access road.
  • Skate park won't be moved until 2022 and City of Bayswater will undertake community consultation on design and new location.

The current park and track is located within the construction location of the future Morley Station and needs to be moved to make way for the multi-storey car park and access road.

The funds will be provided to the City of Bayswater to construct a new facility in a new location, with community consultation already underway.>

The current skate park does not need to be removed until 2022, giving plenty of time for consultation on the new facility.

MELconnx Consortium (Laing O'Rourke Australia Construction) was recently awarded the $700 million main construction contract to build the Morley-Ellenbrook Line, with early works on the project already underway at the new Bayswater Station and Tonkin Gap sites.
