Following community consultation in 2019, Council confirmed that the Braidwood Recreation Ground was the preferred location for a skate park facility in Braidwood. At the same time, Council endorsed a concept design which was developed with skate park specialists Convic and the local community with minor modifications to address water flow.
Funding of $680,880 has been received through the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery (BLER) Fund after a successful grant application was made by the Braidwood Youth Performing Arts Association in conjunction with the Braidwood Community Association.
Ensuring that the skate park is safe for users and spectators is a priority for Council. Engineers have carried out site investigations including geotechnical investigations which have been provided to Convic who have specialist engineers working on the final construction design. The final design will confirm that the skate park will not be constructed within the creek bed, but will be elevated above the water line.
Work has been undertaken at the Recreation Ground to pipe the creek, making it safer for all users of the facility, not just the future skate park. The location will provide a safe option for the community and allow families to use the various recreational elements at the park.
Locating the skate park at the Braidwood Recreation Ground has a number of positives, which were highlighted in the community feedback received in 2019. Some of the positives include:
Convic have provided estimates of approximately $595,000 to construct the skate park at the Recreation Ground.
