Bracken Ridge Skate Plaza

Brisbane City Council is pleased to announce the Bracken Ridge Skate Plaza next to the new Emily Seebohm Aquatic Centre at 523 Telegraph Road in Fitzgibbon is now open.

The Bracken Ridge Skate Plaza provides a competition standard, plaza-style skate facility including a range of unique features and transitions to promote creativity and usability for skaters of all abilities.

Features

  • skate obstacles including ledges, rails, banks, spines and gaps
  • transitions including various quarter pipes and roll-ins to enhance usability and flow
  • unique structures including a skateable planter box, pole jam and pyramid
  • lighting installation to facilitate night time use of the park
  • a shelter, seating and trees to provide shade.

Design

The final design of Bracken Ridge Skate Plaza is the product of significant community input. Council held two informal consultation events with roller sport participants at nearby Deagon Skate Park on 5 August 2015 and Zillmere Skate Park on 6 August 2015.

A formal consultation event was also held at the Sandgate Town Hall on Wednesday 26 August 2015. The event was led by Council and a representative from specialist skate park designer and builder Convic, and stakeholders included representatives from the Brisbane Skateboarding Association and other passionate members of the local skateboarding community.

Council would like to thank the local community and the local and wider roller sport community for their input.
