Petition calls for skate park upgrade
A community organisation is campaigning to have the Umina Beach Skate Park upgraded.
The Umina Community Group has launched a petition for the upgrade of the skate park and is calling on the Umina community and wider Peninsula to sign it.
"This petition is to demonstrate support and to prove that there is a genuine local need to upgrade the Umina Beach Skate Park," said Umina Community Group vice president, Mr Mark Nitsos.
"We believe that Umina (and the surrounding suburbs of Ettalong, Woy Woy, Daley's Point and so on) deserve a top-quality skate park that is free-to-use, safe, inclusive and family-orientated, which caters for users of all ages and abilities.
"The skate park as it stands is worn out and too small to support the large local skate and scooter community as well as the many additional visitors it entertains.
"Our aim is to gain a commitment from Central Coast Council to access grant funding and allocate funding available in the Council Strategic Plan to improve the poor flow and safety of the park, increase its size, to add essentials such as bins, shade, seating, and blubbers and to repair the BMX track and basketball court, thus to recreate Umina Beach Skate Park as world class sporting precinct for our community and visitors."
The petition is available on change.org.
