The Balcombe Park bushland, Balcombe Road, Beaumaris, opposite Sandringham College, is the only one of three sites for a 240 mē concrete skateboard ramp, promoted by a Bayside City Council staff report, that has a conservation Management Plan. Some 850 mē of its bushland would have been lost for a ramp and 10 metre buffer around it. Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc. strongly opposed that scheme. Cr Derek Wilson led the successful move in Council to save Balcombe Park. Clearing a 13 metre bushland swathe to enlarge the soccer pitch is the new threat.
