Locals on skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes can now have their say on the design for a new skatepark in Lawes Street in East Maitland.
Using feedback from local skaters, Council’s design consultants Enlocus have developed a design that will offer something unique to the current skatepark facilities in the area. The design is now on public exhibition until Friday, November 11.
Council recreation planning coordinator Kate Harris said the proposed design reflects a community skatepark that combines an enclosed bowl and street section for skate, scooter and BMX riders of all levels.
The proposed design will also include a large all weather shelter, social seating spaces, a water bubbler and an area that supports spill out spaces for events and competitions.
