Whangamata Skate Park

Updates on the Whangamata Skate Park will be published on this page.

Whangamata Skate ParkStaff have approached companies for refurbishment and repairs of the existing skate park (1265m2 approximately) and construction of a street skate area adjacent to the existing bowl on top of the bank on the park side.

“The idea is to create a better link and flow from the shelter area and create a street skate ‘zone’,” says Ross Ashby, Project Manager. “We want to focus on the iconic nature of the skate bowl, being one of the first of its kind built in the country, and rejuvenate the existing bowl as it is considered important to keep it, but give it a new lease of life.”

Timeframes:

  • Concept and estimate by the end of June 2019
  • Take concepts to users for comment and award one design by July
  • Construction commences before June 2020
