Bad news - Joe from Zalem advised that Council had insufficient funds (wonder if that has anything to do with the site being an old tip???!@) and it was being redesigned....??? (could be a good thing! LOL)

Tried to contact Colin from Council to confirm but he was out so have left a message for him to call me...

If anyone else wants to chase this call Colin Noble at Rockdale Council Ph 9562-1666

"Bicentennial park, just down the road from Brighton Le Sands, right near the Bunnings Warehouse...The Second driveway if coming from the North end / First driveway if coming from the South end, as you drive into the entrance they are building it on your left..."

I had a look on the weekend and I don't think they have started. They are expanding a playground but I couldn't see any skatepark construction.
Maybe we'll have to push the council a little....?

Went down & checked out the progress (or lack thereof), of the area.
Council has stated it will be completed by April 08' (on the big signboard posted there), the plans are also on the signboard, & are as on the previous page.

If you head down there you can see why they would not dig down, as this is all landfill, where they have graded the area & blue metalled it in prep, check the walls dug out, & its' full of plastic bags, bottles & other rubbish, did not realise how close to the surface it all was till I saw it.

Does not look like a big area for it, I guess somethin' is better than nuthin' ?
I just wish they would have put a bowl in there with a street area, similar to Riverwood, if they were restricted with size & money, but they have stated this is Part 1, Part 2 being much bigger, this one (part 1) being aimed at beginner to intermediate (????).

And I do know there was a trade off, as it was bmxers that started the ball rolling on this quite a long time ago.

We'll see wot its' like in April, I s'pose...

If they're planning 2 stages, why not make a plaza first, then add a bowl later? Those plans are so 91!

Then again, looking at history, once stage 1 is done, stage 2 will always be a pipe dream.
