Watsonia Pop Up Skate Park Evaluation

In January 2018, Council ran a Pop Up Skate Park in Ibbotson Street, Watsonia. The Pop Up Skate Park operated for 18 days and offered a range of activities for people of all ages. 

Council received a positive response from participants at the Skate Park but now we want to hear from the local community about their experience of the Pop Up Skate Park. 

We have developed two surveys, one for residents local to the skate park, and one for traders in Watsonia. Please partner with us to share your thoughts on this Council initiative

This survey is one of a number of ways we want to connect with young people over the next few months to find out the answers to this question.  The answers will be available on the Youth Central website in November.
