Sunshine Beach Skatepark

Council and Convic, skatepark designers, captured ideas for an upgrade from the community at a public meeting that was held at Sunshine Beach skatepark on Saturday April 23, 2016. These ideas were considered in the new design for the upgrade.

Council presented a Draft Concept Design to the community in August 2016. Again, this feedback contributed to the final design.

The new design was accepted by Council, construction went ahead and the newly revamped Skate Park reopened in September 2017.

    • A mini-half pipe.
    • Rollover with A-frame hubba,
    • Flat bank and jersey block.
    • Love seat quarter pipe.
    • A-frame and flat steel rails.

  • Skate park upgrade to deliver Noosa’s first enclosed skate bowl

    6 months ago

    A major upgrade of Sunshine Beach Skate Park will deliver the shire’s first enclosed – or in-ground – skate bowl.

    It’s among a list of elements skaters asked for during last year’s community consultation.

    Project officer Dallas Bickley said every surface of the new skate park was designed with skating in mind, including the new concrete seats.

    “The existing park is more than 13 years old, so it’s due for an upgrade. The revamped design will give local skaters a new challenge,” he said.

    “Resurfacing of the park plus the addition of water taps were other popular requests from skaters during last year’s community consultation. This upgrade will deliver all of that.”

    The new park will cater for both street and transition skaters.

    Key elements include:

    · A mini-half pipe.

    · Rollover with A-frame hubba,

    · Flat bank and jersey block.

    · Love seat quarter pipe.

    · A-frame and flat steel rails.

    · The enclosed skate bowl will feature a taco-shaped corner.

    The existing large steel half pipe will remain.

    Council will start work in June, 2017.

    “The project will take around 10 weeks to complete, weather permitting and we’ll have to close the park for that time. We appreciate skaters’ patience while we finish the project. But it will be worth the wait,” Mr Bickley said.

    Meanwhile, Council is pleased to assist the delivery of a Revolutions workshop series through its Community Grants program. The free workshops, held at local skate parks between now and late September, make learning to skateboard fun, safe and easy.

  • Skateboarders want vert ramp,smooth surfaces, water and shade

    over 1 year ago

    Over 100 people attended the Sunshine Beach Skate Day to provide their thoughts on what the Skate Park redevelopment should involve. Initial reviews of the surveys completed on the day indicate that skaters like the vert ramp most and dislike the existing rough surface of the concrete. Ideas for improvements were varied, with most requesting better shade and a better water bubbler. The main concern emerging from skaters for the redevelopment is to ensure the finished surface of the park is smooth and non-abrasive. Council will be working with designers Convic to consider the ideas generated from the Skate Day... Continue reading
