Baradine Skate Park Construction

Work on the Baradine skate park project will be commencing in March 2020 and is expected to be completed by June 2020.‚Äč

“It will be great to see the skate park finished and being enjoyed for many years to come”, said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Denis Todd. “The skate park is predominantly designed for skateboard, BMX and scooter riders, but will also accommodate other activities such as roller skates/blades, remote control cars, toddler trikes and ball sports such as handball. This will allow a broad range of community members to make use of the facility.

“The local community has been involved in the skate park from the beginning. The concept was initiated in 2017 by a working group of potential users, business owners, Yowie & Friends Inc and Ability Links NSW. These groups identified the need to provide a safe, accessible, inclusive and creative area that can be utilised for a wide range of activities, by a wide variety of people within Baradine” said Cr Todd.

The skate park is being constructed at the Baradine Oval complex, which the community identified as the preferred location. While construction was originally reduced due to budget constraints, sufficient savings have been made in other projects that now permit construction to be in accordance with the original design provided by Premise and United Skate parks, in consultation with the Baradine community.

“The contract for construction was awarded to CONVIC Pty Ltd. in January 2020 after Council was successful in securing additional funding from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities program”, explained Cr Todd.

CONVIC has over 20 years experience in delivery of community youth facilities throughout Australia and across the world that meet the needs and demands of local and global youth and community users and are recognised as one of the world’s leading experts in skate park design and construction. Their experience has been recognised by the Masters Builders Australia National Export Award for international construction works.
