Design options roll in for three new skate parks in Lake Mac


Lake Macquarie City Council is calling on the community to choose their favourite design for three new skate parks in Windale, Morisset and Croudace Bay.

Enlocus Landscape Architects have used information from the first phase of community consultation in 2018 to create six street-style skate park designs – two options for each location.

Residents are now being asked to vote on which design they like best.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser recognised the importance of a collaborative approach to the design.

“We have a very passionate and avid skating community in Lake Macquarie, so it was important that we create something for the community by the community,” said Cr Fraser.

“Together with Enlocus Landscape Architects we have created designs that responded to the community’s requests, so I’m excited to see how people vote.”

Council’s Manager Asset Management Brendan Callander said the designs include features that will appeal to both skateboarders and BMX riders.

“We received a lot of input from that community suggesting they wanted a street-style design over a traditional skate bowl,” Mr Callander said.

“Council will invest more than $2 million into the three locations and the designs feature dynamic skating elements like, steep flat banks, wallrides and down rails, I’m confident that each of the skate parks will have something for everyone.”

At Croudace Bay, the skate park is envisioned as part of a revamp for Thomas H Halton Park.

Morisset’s project would adjoin a new playground and outdoor fitness area in Bernie Goodwin Memorial Park.

In Windale, the Bahloo Reserve project is expected to double the size of the former skate park near the suburb’s PCYC.

The consultation period will be open until Wednesday 10 June, with skate fans as well as local residents able to log in and view the options before completing a short survey where they can pick their preferred design.

The survey can be completed and designs viewed online at: https://shape.lakemac.com.au/skate-lake-mac.
