We’re excited to announce the results of the month-long Jindabyne Skatepark Refurbishment consultation with the community provided clear direction for the future of the facility and highlighted key changes that should be made to the proposed skate park design.
Our community has told us that the park design should be redrawn to reflect more of an open skate park design – as represented in draft plans and skate park features provided by the community. All examples of skate park features and community draft plans provided to Council align with the survey results.
Overall, the survey responses highlighted four key changes:
- Addition of more ‘street’ and plaza style features with an open skate park design
- Inclusion of more seating and shading areas for parents to supervise children
- Removal of the pump track feature from the design
- Concrete all dirt sections, combining the entire space
More than 50 percent of feedback commented on the functionality of the design, stressing the need for more basic progression features with simple street park design and layout.
Comments highlight that the pump track and bowl feature dominate the space within the proposed park design, with major concern for safety in collision areas, especially with less skate aware users and spectators.
The post-consultation report supports that there is a clear need to redesign the skate park in line with more street and plaza style features and the reduction or removal of the pump track.
Council would like to thank everyone who participated in the consultation. This highlights how big a difference community involvement makes to important projects in the Snowy Monaro. We’ll continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.
