Raymond Terrace is about to get two new skate parks.
One's going in at Lakeside no. 2 reserve, next to the new playground.
While the second skate park is being built at Boomerang Park on the northern side of the playground.
"The Lakeside skate park will be user-friendly, with components for all skill levels, whilst still remaining interesting for more experienced riders," Port Stephens Council's Brock Lamont said.
"The Boomerang Park skate park will cater for all abilities, however it has been designed to offer more interest and difficulty to advanced riders."

Both skate park's will be built at the same time.
Construction will start in the next few weeks and take about seven weeks.

The current skate park near Marketplace Shopping Centre will be removed once the new ones are built.
Council will try to reuse components where possible to add to other skate parks around Port Stephens.
