At the time of print, construction of the Billabong Park Skate Facility at Cooloola Cove is almost complete, with additional drainage infrastructure being scheduled last month to protect the structure from heavy rainfall, which has unfortunately caused lengthy delays.
Earlier last month, work on the car park, footpaths and turf installation was completed.
Stay tuned to Council’s website and Facebook page for more information about the Billabong Park Skate Facility.
