    Over 60 young people and their families joined SkaterHQ and Kalof at Terrey Hills Oval on Thursday 28 September to test out ideas for the new skate park.

    Thanks to everyone involved especially all the young skaters who had their say on the park design. Council staff are now working through all the comments and pictures collected to help create a design.

  • Background

    2 months ago

    Terrey Hills Oval is 56 hectare park situated between Yulong Avenue and Beltana Avenue, Terrey Hills.

    Together with the adjacent Frank Beckman Reserve the site provides valuable open space, active recreational and environmental opportunities for the Terrey Hills and Duffys Forest community.

    Among the features of the site are two full size football fields, Terrey Hills Tennis Club, cricket nets, basketball court, large areas of remnant Duffys Forest, Terrey Hills Rugby Club and strong connectivity to Terrey Hills Shops and public transport.

    There has been a gap in provision of skate or alternative youth active recreation spaces in Terrey Hills since the removal of the half pipe skate facility in the 2000s.

    We aim to undertake a Landscape Plan for Terrey Hills Oval and Frank Beckman Reserve in 2019 to identify a long term plan to develop the site to meet the needs of the community, increase its environmental value and maximise the sporting capacity of the site. One of the key features to be included in the Landscape Plan would be the provision of a new skatepark.

    However, we have identified options for a flexible solution that can be implemented in the shorter term. The project consists of building a temporary skatepark using prefabricated skate elements on a concrete slab. These elements can be relocated if the Landscape Plan ultimately finds a more suitable position for a permanent skatepark or the area could be expanded on if the location is deemed appropriate for the long term home for the skate park.
