The guidelines aim to help local governments create and strengthen their overall city-wide skate strategy.

The purpose of this project is to provide a basis for Local Government to create and strengthen their overall city-wide skate strategy. The guidelines work towards an integrated approach to skate parks by including four pillars; needs assessment, design, operation and management for local government.

While the City of Casey has taken the lead in this project, the guidelines are aimed to assist all Local Government Authority’s to develop their skate strategy or open space planning. The main aims are to engage key stakeholders in the needs assessment, planning, implementation and management stages of skate parks.

Additionally, to align guidelines with other council, community, neighbourhood, parks, open space and child youth and family strategies.
