The existing Hikurangi Skatepark on King Street (near Lake Waro) is getting renewed.

Why are we renewing it?

The current skate park is made up of a mixture of concrete and wooden framed ramps and contours. Both the wooden and concrete items have defects that are beyond repair. They pose a health and safety risk to users of the skate park.

The skate park is nearing the end of its economical life, and as a part of the cyclic renewal programme, this skate park is due to be renewed.

What we are doing

The design and specification will be for a high-quality wheeled play space catering for a range of ages and abilities. Priorities are likely to include:

  • Removal of existing wooden features which are at the end of their asset life
  • Some new transition elements to replace the existing ones which are poorly constructed, particularly in the mini ramp area at the back
  • The addition of new features to improve park flow and to modernise the park
  • Surface treatment to provide a smoother and more enjoyable riding experience 

Rich Landscapes have been involved in the design. The detail design document is available below:
