A skate park upgrade is on the way for Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve as part of council’s Skateboard and BMX Facilities Strategy, with construction works due to start in early 2022.
Division 1 Councillor Jacob Madsen said the upgrade to the regional level skate and youth facility was identified through the strategy.
“The current skate park had reached its end of life and needed to be replaced,” Cr Madsen said.
“The community was encouraged to provide their feedback and let council know what facilities would be most suitable.
“Some of the exciting upgrades include a quarter pipe, flat bank, volcano, waterfall, flat bar, circulation bar, footpath and seating.”
Division 1 Councillor Sheila Ireland said the long overdue upgrade will provide many benefits to the community.
“Council is committed to providing spaces that promote social inclusion, health and well-being benefits for our community,” Cr Ireland said.
“With the recent skateboarding success at the Tokyo Olympics, this upgrade is a great opportunity for council to showcase our amazing sporting facilities on the world stage as we prepare for the 2032 Olympic Games.”
The final design of the imagery of the regional skate and youth facility at Redbank Plains Recreation Reserve is now ready and can be viewed here.
