About the project
The skate park is located within Booker Place Park, close to the Sugarwood Street car park. The current skate park is popular with young people and families and the new design will encourage new users to learn how to skate.
In 2021/22, Council undertook consultation with the local community on the layout of the new proposed skate park and future projects in the park. Feedback from the community indicated support for the new facility. Council incorporated community feedback into initial and final designs to create improved recreation opportunities for the local community.
The Booker Place Park skate park is part of Brisbane's network of more than thirty existing skate facilities, ranging in scale and function from single skateable elements to large plaza-style skate parks. These skate facilities serve an important role in active and healthy lifestyle opportunities in Brisbane.
The skate park was identified as requiring refurbishment as it had reached the end of its serviceable life due to its location in a high flood zone. The works enabled a better suited and safer space for the surrounding community.
The new skate park provides a combination of street and transitional styles that will cater for beginner and intermediate skaters. The old skate bowl was replaced with the following elements:
- a central fun box with banked hip and ledge
- free standing quarter pipe extension
- flow bowl transition section
- concrete roll over and flow section
- adjoining scooter track
- volcano fun box
- A-frame fun box with quarter pipe and kerb
- four stairs to a kicker Euro gap
- down ledge and down rail.
