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.

    MEDIA RELEASE: 1 July 2020

    Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman and Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Duncan Gair have today officially opened the brand-new Bundanoon Skate Park.

    “This is an absolutely fabulous facility that I’m sure our Shire’s youth will enjoy for years to come,” Mayor Gair said.

    “I’m particularly pleased at the range of elements that have been included in the park ensuring skaters of all abilities can enjoy it.”

    During the opening the Mayor thanked the project’s many contributors.

    “The staff of Council and contractors have done a wonderful job in delivering this project,” he said. “I also thank the Member for Goulburn for supporting us and helping secure the funds for the project.”

    “I would however save my final praise for the local community, in particular the youth of Bundanoon,” he added.

    “The entire village got right behind young Tyson Robb and his mates and deserve full credit for their passion, patience and enthusiasm.”

    Construction on the $416,304 project began in late 2019 but was delayed due to the impact of the Morton Bush Fire, record rains and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Mrs Tuckerman said the NSW Government’s commitment to funding amenities that improve everyday life in the regions has delivered new and improved infrastructure like the skatepark, pathways, cycleways and sporting fields.

    “The Stronger Country Communities Fund delivers smaller projects that make a big difference to everyday life, and with social distancing allowing communities to stay healthy and exercise outside, I’d say that difference is now more noteable than ever,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

    “Projects like the Bundanoon Skate Park are priceless to our local communities – I am delighted that the Wingecarribee Shire Council have completed the project.”

    An official community event celebrating the project will be held when further social distancing restrictions are eased.

    The Bundanoon Skate Park is located within the Bundanoon Oval precinct on Erith Street in Bundanoon.

    The Bundanoon Skate Park is a joint project by Wingecarribee Shire Council with funding provided via the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund including design by California Skate Parks and specialised construction by Trinity Skate Parks.
