Works are underway on a major project to further improve and enhance the Endeavour Hills Community Precinct and now residents have the opportunity to help us name this exciting project.
The City of Casey is undertaking a $3.36 million project in the heart of Endeavour Hills to deliver a new and improved regional skate park, new playground, terraced landscaping, lawn area for events and installation of gymnastics and parkour equipment.
The skate park will cater for beginners through to experienced skaters and scooter riders, extending over 865m2 of skateable terrain, including a street course and various bowls.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon said Council is now looking to give the community precinct a name and wants the community to help us decide.
“We’ve worked with a branding and design consultant to come up with four potential names, each of which is unique, has its own story and reflects different aspects of Endeavour Hills and this project,” she said.
“Once complete, this precinct will be become a hub for the Endeavour Hills community to meet, socialise, skate and play, so it’s fitting that we get their input on what they’d like to see it named once it’s complete.
“I encourage all residents to help us decide on a name by simply jumping online and casting a vote for your favourite name.”
The four shortlisted names are:
- MESH (acronym: Mingle. Explore. Skate. Hub.)
- Hillscape Park
- Binbeal Park
- Gradient 22
To find out more about the story behind each name and to cast your vote by Sunday 23 June 2019 visit the Casey Conversations website.
The current works are stage 2 of the revitalisation of Endeavour Hill’s town centre. Stage 1 was completed in 2016, which delivered a public square, café/kiosk and improved pedestrian connections.
Stage 2 is expected to be completed in early 2020, however works are currently running ahead of schedule, so we’ll keep the community updated about when this exciting project is ready for use.
Council is investing $1.68m, which is being matched with a $1.68m grant from the State Government through the Growing Suburbs Fund.
