Bundanoon Skate Park

Teens succeed in getting upgrade of skate park

Tyson Robb is a Bundanoon teenager with a vision and determination to improve the recreational facilities on offer for our local youth. Tyson and his friends pounded the pavement to gather over 1500 signatures on a petition to Council for improvements to the Bundanoon Skate Park in Erith Street.

Thanks to clear support from the community, Council successfully obtained grant funding from the Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 2 and the project is now underway. The new skatepark will be constructed on the site of the existing basketball court.

Council met with tenderers, teenagers and parents on site in May to talk through the objectives of the project. Companies then submitted tenders to Council including sample designs.

Tyson’s team promoted the opportunity for residents to vote for their favourite design and offer feedback at a display set up on the basketball court on 13 August 2019.

The contract has now been awarded to Five Design PTY LTD who has engaged California Skate Parks to finalise the design and Trinity Skate Parks to undertake the construction. The final design development was carried out with a large contingent of the Bundanoon community on 19 September 2019 with valuable input provided from the local youth.

California Skate Parks is currently turning the concept into construction drawings with the anticipated site establishment and construction commencement planned for late November. Council is excited to deliver this all abilities facility early in the new year.

It’s expected that the construction of a skate park that will accommodate all ages and levels of ability will take three months.
