The skate park is being renewed creating a fresh new layout that will incorporate a number of new skate features such as a skate bowl, concrete vertical ramp, hob walls with metal edges, flat banks with hubba ledge and an additional kicker ramp.
In addition to the skate features, seating, a shaded area and an exciting public art piece will be incorporated into the space.
The car park is also being renewed with a few parking spaces added.
Council has awarded the contract for the construction of Shellharbour Skate Park to VFG Skate Parks.
Construction commenced 29 January 2018. It is anticipated that works will be completed by early July, weather pending.
Due to safety measures the entire park will be closed during construction. Site signage is displayed at the park to inform park users of what’s happening.
Council has engaged artist Graham Chalcroft to design public artworks to be integrated into the skate park. Graham has been working with our local young people on site at the skate park to ensure their ideas and values influence the final design concept.
Workshops were facilitated onsite in October and November allowing Graham to collect some great ideas and inspirations. The sculpture will includes elements from a number of action wheeled sports such as skateboarding, BMX, and scooters.
