SHIRE of Murray has received $250,000 through Lotterywest towards the development of a skate park and pump track for Dwellingup.
Murray-Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke presented the certificate to Shire President David Bolt and chief executive Dean Unsworth to complement a previous grant received through the State Government’s Sporting Recreation Facilities Fund.
Developing a skate park and pump park have been highlighted as priority projects for the Shire of Murray’s Dwellingup National Trails Centre project, part of an overall plan to transform Dwellingup into a tourist town of national and international significance.
Mrs Clarke said development of a skate park and pump track would make an enormous difference to the local community.
She said the State Government had now contributed more than $500,000.
Cr Bolt said the skate and pump park would enhance other project components including a trails centre – an expanded and transformed Dwelling History and Visitor Centre with additional toilets and hot showers, an adventure playground, entertainment stage, additional barbecues and picnic facilities and upgraded parking, pathways and signage.
