Frankston Deputy Mayor Nathan Conroy discusses the upgrade of Langwarrin Skate Park with Caiden.

A passionate Peninsula skater has brought two levels of government together over his call for an upgrade of Langwarrin Skate Park. Thirteen-year-old Caiden, who’s a regular user of the park with his brothers, recently gathered 355 signatures to his online petition calling for the upgrade. That caught the attention of Frankston City Council, which discussed the petition with Dunkley federal Labor MP Peta Murphy and applied for a $20,000 Federal Government grant for design work and community consultation, which it will match if its application is successful.

“The ramps don’t really cater for younger kids and all the different skill levels,” Caiden said. “I think if there’s more kids, there will be more parents so it will be a safer experience to come here. I think (an upgrade) will also bring the community together more, and more kids will be able to meet up.”

Frankston Deputy Mayor Nathan Conroy said the consultation process would involve speaking directly with skaters like Caiden who use the park as well as to the wider community “to ensure we’re delivering a space they can enjoy that meets their needs”. “It’s important that we provide an environment where young people feel safe participating and being actively involved in their community,” Cr Conroy said.

The council expects to receive a response regarding its application by the middle of the year. If it’s successful, work on the upgrade could start next year.
