Corowa Skate Park Extension
Redevelopment of the Corowa Skatepark will improve the usability and appeal of this important asset for our young people, by catering for a broader range of ages and skill.
The project will see the creation of a youth activation area that offers young people an alternative recreation option to traditional sports and encourages social connections. It will also support community and youth events and attract visitation from throughout the region.
The project has secured $333,170 through the Stronger Communities Major Project Fund and is also being supported through funds raised by the Skate Park Committee ($16,130).
Initial concept designs were developed by the Skate Park Committee and have been used as a basis to engage expert consultants and progress more detailed planning for the project.
Further exploration of the site however, has identified a number of issues that need to be considered before the design can be finalised.
The need to re-work the design presents an opportunity for Council to consult more broadly to ensure the best outcome is achieved. This will provide more young people with the chance to have input into the final design and help Council to understand the needs and expectations of users.
Council is in the process of engaging skate park experts to work with young people to finalise the design. A detailed timeline and information about how to be involved will then be communicated.
