CSRFF case studies

Four case studies of successful CSRFF grants.

Armadale Skate Park – City of Armadale

Construction of a youth activities area in the Armadale city centre incorporating skate and BMX facilities. 

The Armadale Skate Park is ideally located in the town centre precinct of Armadale, adjacent to the City of Armadale Skate Park and Armadale Shopping Centre. The park incorporates a street urban plaza section and a mini ramp section to replicate elements located in a traditional street setting. This allows the design to accommodate BMX riders, inline skaters and skateboard riders whilst blending a passive community area with a large television screen, viewing area and seating.

The Armadale Skate Park was completed in February 2012.
