A SKATE park is taking shape in Wanneroo.

Construction started on the wheeled sports facility at Wanneroo Showground in late April and is due for completion by the end of July.

The City of Wanneroo approved Carving Concrete Construction’s tender for construction at its April 5 meeting.

The facility will include an enclosed bowl for skating, skate terrace and ledges, three-on-three basketball court, social spaces and grassed spectator area.

The project costs nearly $600,000, with $200,000 to come from a Lotterywest grant.
