Construction has begun on an exciting new redevelopment of the Narara Skate Park, one of the Central Coast's oldest skate parks.

Feedback from local skaters, riders and young people played an important role in the final design of the skate park's layout. The redevelopment celebrates the suburb's cultural heritage, intertwining the Indigenous meaning for Narara, "black snake" into the skate park's design.

Standout features include a combination of bowl, transition and skate plaza style, catering for all skill levels and skate styles. It incorporates elements which will enable it to be used for future competitions and riding workshops.

Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan said the redevelopment is expected to be completed in 12 weeks, with funding from the Australian Government's Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

"Skate park specialists consulted the community and developed the final design based on the latest skate innovations and what skaters and riders told us was important to them," Ms Vaughan said.

"The skate park is near Paddy Clifton Oval, Sensory Park public reserve, and a dog off-leash area, so is a destination for not just skaters and riders, but other family members as well."

Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said the redevelopment emphasises the importance Council places on the region's young people.

"The development of this district-level park complements other outstanding skate facilities across the region and provides an important space for young people, along with older skaters and riders, to exercise outdoors," Mr Persson said.

Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks said the Australian Government's $960,000 investment in community infrastructure would provide long term benefits to the Central Coast.

"We have seen the positive outcomes that skate parks offer for young people and their families through the tremendous success of Banjo's stake park in Terrigal," Ms Wicks said.

"I am thrilled to see another safe, active and vibrant recreational space underway with Narara Skate Park.

"This investment will prove to be a huge boost for Narara as this project is expected to benefit more than 8,000 young people in our local area."
