The Moe Rail Revitalisation Youth Precinct is a transformation of the George Street precinct. The project initially started in 2010 and sought to reimagine the precinct as an integrated new park and civic destination.

About

Situated in the LaTrobe Valley the new youth and family precinct is a part of the Moe Revitalisation Project initiated in 2016. The precinct enables a new integrated urban park with all members of community learning, playing and participating. It has become a catalyst project for community pride. The skate park has three clear areas for all levels of skating including the beginner urban skate zone, intermediate skate area and the advanced area including a large 3m deep skating bowl. The urban play area has proven to be a success with new and advanced skaters.

The multiple skill level zones ensure the skate park is accessible to all levels of skating ability. The family area hosts a double bbq and large communal outdoor dining area. Just like the book The Little Crooked House, the new playground has been built right on the edge of the railway track enabling all to enjoy play, train watch and nature play in this new play zone. The event lawn with multiple seating opportunities, and new permitter garden that will grow over time.
