Yeah park looks rad but what's the deal with the patch of dirt? They gonna plant some shrubs or some shit in there?

Don't know how close you look at those pics, but the park was far from complete, in terms of landscape, grass, etc and the fences were all still up.

I would imagine it will / would have been all grassed and filled before the opening.

Someone got new pics of today or anything?

It's all turfed. It's also infested with 6 year old kids sporting mullets riding scooters.

I skated it. Too small to have more than few people on it, criss cross lines everywhere. No refuge areas for anyone to stand i.e. no platforms on any of the hips or quarters = people standing in the way all over the park. The dirt/grassed area would have been the space you used to avoid people. Instead you have no room to pass anyone safely. I don't know what is going on with these new parks having grassed or rocked areas. The new shailer park "skatepark" is another example. Seriously there was 10 people on the park when I skated it, and it was too crowded to have a proper roll.

There were also a number of areas on the "track" where it wasn't wide enough to have two people pass safely. Combine that with a child who doesn't have much control of their scooter/ripstick/rollerblades/bike and you have to step off...

Epic ender mate! Ha ha!

The nice people at Cooly looked like they were standing on the grass as opposed to all over the "track" when I skated it.
