“I am so pleased that Federal Government funding can support worthwhile projects like the Lucindale Skate Park for the Naracoorte Lucindale Council region,” Mr Pasin said.

“I know how important these developments and upgrades are for local communities because I recognise the social and community benefits that come from increased activity.” Mr Pasin said.
