Inquiries started!

I will let you know what the story is!

And prompt a flood of protest if the rumur is true!

can't happen, it's an icon. Why does it cost anything to maintain?

All that regular resurfacing, new coats of paint...

I have managed to speak to the local Government contact about this and he let me know that as far as he's aware there are no plans to fill Kambah in at this stage.

There isn't a skateboard association anymore for Canberra and there is no skateparks committee or anything to consult through right now, so I've asked if I could be kept in the loop for any developments. At this stage there has been some restructuring and there isn't anything on the agenda for skateparks in Canberra except upgrading the lights at Belco.

Rumour Only Guys: - Kambah is currently safe!-

Official Feedback recieved today!
Dear Mr Pang

Thank you for your email enquiry of 2 April 2007 regarding the halfpipe skate facility located near the Kambah Adventure Playground. I apologise for the delay in responding to your enquiry.

It is good to read that this skate facility does get used. There is currently no plan to fill in this facility.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss further.
