Skate Park Opens

The Bermagui Skate Park is finally here!

It is so exciting to see this long awaited project finally become a reality.

Project manager Jim Callaghan and a dedicated team of workers and volunteers have worked together to create a fabulous asset for the Bermagui Community. It has taken over 15 years for the project to finally happen with lots of fundraising and support from many people. This has been an amazing community effort with local business, council and community members all working together….

Apologies if we have missed any individuals or businesses, but please know that your help and support was greatly appreciated.

The park is a fabulous asset for our community, a place where people of all ages can come to skate, scoot and ride. The fabulous design has taken into consideration all ages with scope for toddlers, kids, teens and adults to all have fun.

It is hoped that the addition of picnic areas, paths, playground and exercise equipment in the future will further add to this as place where everyone feels welcome.

Many thanks to you all,

From the Bermagui Skate Park Committee
