PARALLEL presents “TANNERY”. The Tannery AKA Preston DIY is one of the only community-built skateparks in Australia. Since the start of Covid-19, with skateparks closed across Victoria, many people have been making their way to the DIY. This has created a core crew that likes to get it done!! Due to stage 4 lockdowns and a heavy police presence, we are going postpone works for the moment but want to keep up the momentum once we can get back into it. You can support the Tannery project on Gofundme.
