Tell me about the park?
Through initial engagement the community has told us they would like to see features that can be ridden by a variety of riders (e.g. Skateboard, scooter, BMX, blades etc.), by all abilities and age groups.
The five main design areas considered to achieve this are:
A contained area which includes a number of small humps. Generally used by beginner or younger riders but provides for a range of users and abilities. View moguland here.
Transitioned bowl environment with pool coping mimicking some of the early skate environments of the 1970’s. Usually used by more intermediate to advanced riders. View pool bowl here.
Flow bowl section
Area with a number of different transitional features and edging treatments that can be used by a range of users and abilities. View the flow bowl here.
Open plaza environment
A large open space area that allows space for all users. This area also includes a stage which can be used for events and skateable art feature. View open plaza here.
Box Jump Section
The box jump section includes a number of ramps of different sizes as well as a BMX styled mini ramp. This area is typically used by BMX and Scooter riders but provides for a range of users and abilities. View box jump section here.
