Plans for a Legana skate park are still in the works, West Tamar Council’s general manager says. 

A park is proposed in the Legana Structure Plan. 

“The plan sees a redevelopment of the town and includes a large recreational space … that land concept also has a skate park or at least conceptually a skate park. It’s some years away,” general manager Rolph Vos said. 

The council is working to find a temporary location for a park in the town. Mr Vos said there was a proposed site, but neighbours “protested strongly” against it.

Mr Vos said the council planned to work with the region’s youth group about where the temporary park should be built. He said the council will ask if a skate park is still a priority for youth in Legana.
