Junior Skate Park

A Junior Skate Park at Bondi Park had been proposed as part of the Bondi Park, Beach and Pavilion Plan of Management (Bondi POM) 2014 - 2024.

As of April 2016, Council engaged with the community to gather information and further develop ideas to start the design of the Junior Skate Park Extension. To date, it has been a wonderful engagement process. The community has shown great interest in this project with over 420 people providing feedback via our online survey and many people contributing to stakeholder consultations, workshops and Have Your Say Day's.

Pre-Design Consultation Report

Through this process, a Pre-Design Consultation Report was developed. This report outlines the community consultation process and criteria considered to create a successful junior skate park. It summarises the results and comments of each session, makes recommendations of the typology of the facility and creates a design vision for Bondi's Junior Skate Park.

What did the community's feedback tell us?

The community's valuable feedback and professional analysis made it very clear that the current skate park at Bondi Beach is is need of significant improvements. The current design has limited functionality and usability, limited capacity to safely hold more that two to three skaters at a time, and it's lifespan is limited to 5 years if considerable works do not occur. As such, we believe the direction of this project and it's priorities have changed.

What happens next?

Council's first priority was to repair and maintain the current skate park to ensure risk and safety needs were attended to. This work was completed as of 13 October 2017.

We are now in the process of developing a business case to take this project in a new direction and look at redesigning the entire skate park. This business case will ensure that we plan for a well-considered skate park that improves the facility, works well with the site and caters to a number of users and skill levels, whilst also pleasing the community's needs and wants. Once complete, we will present this business case to Council in order to attain their support to review the whole skate park design.
