The 2,625 m² Concourse Green public open space land (85.5 x 30.7 metres) at Beaumaris Concourse is public heritage that was being targeted in 2002 for the central tenth of it to be alienated for a concrete skateboard ramp.

 

A 2004 petition of 1,140 signatures to Bayside City Council, and only 12% support in Council’s survey of 3 proposed sites, cooled Council’s enthusiasm, so the concrete skateboard ramp went to Donald McDonald Reserve instead. The Concourse Green’s new Public Park and Recreation zoning would not have prevented its having a ramp on it.
