  • Concept finalised

    about 4 years ago

    The Concept for the Wauchope Skate Park has been finalised.

    This concept is the final result of many months of community consultation and collaboration between Council, ‘Skate Wauchope’ and design and construction specialists Revolution Action Sports Concepts.

    Stage one will cater to beginner and intermediate skaters and will include landscaping, a new footpath and seating. The designs are also expandable to cater to future stages.

    Work is expected to start in August and by the end of September it should be ready for the local community to enjoy.

  • Stage 1 is on its way

    over 4 years ago

    Thank you to everyone who has been involved so far in this exciting project, from helping pick the site to planning the design.

    Recently we applied for funding through the Community Building Partnerships, but unfortunately we were not successful this time around.

    This means we do not have the money to build the entire park in one go.

    But ... we are not deterred. Council has put aside funding to construct stage 1. Plans are underway to start this in the next few months and we hope to have a construction company by the end of May this year.

    Once this is finalised we will come back to you with the design for the whole skate park (around mid June) to get your comments. We hope to start construction of stage 1 during August and September.

  • Update - Concept design on exhibition

    over 5 years ago

    Where are we up to with the Wauchope Skate Park?

    Location

    Following discussion with the community in last year, Council approved Landrigan Park as the site for the skatepark in November.

    Design

    A number of workshops provided an opportunity for residents and students to have their say on the possible design of the skate park.

    • In February four design workshops were held at schools (one at Wauchope Primary and three at Wauchope High School) to gather ideas for what the new skate park would look like.
    • In February an open community workshop was also held in Wauchope to discuss designs.

    Through the design workshops, a concept plan for the skate park evolved. The concept plan was developed in collaboration with the local community. It includes the elements most requested and layout proposed at the workshops.

    We now invite you to have a look at the proposed design and provide feedback on the concept skate park design.

  • Newsletter sent out November 2013

    almost 6 years ago

    Update - Wauchope’s New Skate Park 

    Thank you for completing the recent survey regarding the proposed new skate park at Wauchope. We have sent you this email as you indicated you would like to be kept informed about the new skate park.

    At the Council meeting on 20 November 2013, Council adopted Landrigan Park as the location for new skate park at Wauchope. Landrigan Park is on Cameron Street, south of Andrews Park, next to the indoor stadium. 

    Landrigan Park was widely supported by the community as the preferred location for the skate park. It is reasonably close to town, has good visibility, is not surrounded by residences (the closest residence is over 50 metres away), is large enough for a 400m2 skate park and associated facilities (like seating and shade trees), and is next to an existing recreational facility and car park. As Landrigan Park is on a main street, pedestrian access to the new skate park would be designed and constructed as part of the new facility development.

    Now that the new skate park location has been determined, the next step is to develop the design for the skate park. A number of people have already requested to be involved in the skate park design process, and there may be others who want to join in. To provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved, a series of workshops will be held next year (after the start of the new school year) with schools and community to start developing the design. More information will be available in the new year with details about where and when the workshops will take place.

    Thank you for being involved in this exciting community project.  If you do not want to receive further updates about the skate park, please reply to this email and let me know.
