Great news! We are responding to feedback from skate park users and are removing the sealant from the large bowl at the Minkarra skate park.
After the successful trial of a high-powered laser to remove the sealant from a section of the large skate bowl in August, we are now proceeding with removal of the sealant on the whole bowl.
For safety, the skate park will need to be closed while the contractors are on site and the laser removal is taking place.
The large skate bowl will be closed until the sealant removal is complete but the rest of the skate park will still be available for use after 5pm, Monday to Saturday and all day on Sundays.
Work has begun and we expect the sealant removal to take about 4 weeks, depending on the weather.

We have listened to feedback from skate park users and over several months have been communicating with skate park user representatives on how we can improve the surface.
We have been testing different treatments to remove the sealant without damaging the underlying concrete.
In August, a trial of a high-powered laser to remove the sealant was successful and assessed as the best way to remove the rest of the sealant from the large bowl.
