The Snake Valley Linear Park Skate Park is the first stage in a four stage project to develop the Linear Park as an inclusive open recreational space where residents can gather and take part in informal recreation activities while enjoying the convenience of having a regional-class facility located in their township. Previous to this project being built, there were no formal parks or passive recreational spaces in Snake Valley other than Mag Dam and a small playground next to the Snake Valley Hall. As a result, no opportunities were presented for residents to visit local public parks to enjoy garden surrounds, have a BBQ or picnic with friends or ride BMX/skateboards and scooters.

Young people who live in Snake Valley and surrounds now have access to an excellent skate park. The park, which was built designed by skate-park specialist, Baseplate Design, includes a bowl and street course, and was designed so that there is the possibility of adding a snake run at a later date. It was built by international skate park specialist, Convic, which has an Australian arm.

The skate park was one of the projects outlined in the Snake Valley Community Action Plan, so its completion fulfills one of the objectives of that plan.

This project was funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria ($250,000) and the Pyrenees Shire Council ($125,000).
