As part of Johnson Property Group’s on-going commitment to deliver local infrastructure for our community, one of the next projects currently in planning is a new Skate Park within the Watagan Park estate. The Skate Park will be located within the new On-Site Sports Facility precinct – adjacent to the new Watagan Park Town Centre.
In late 2022, Johnson Property Group sought input from the Watagan Park residents into the proposed Skate Park and what preferred skateable or ridable elements were desired.
The two prevailing skate park options were Street Plaza style, and Flow (or Transition) style. With Council recently delivering a Flow (Transition) style park at Morisset, Council’s preference is the Street Plaza style, to contribute to the user experience with different skate facilities in the south-western side of the lake. Council requested JPG to progress with further design development of the Street Plaza style and we now present two options back to the Watagan Park residents for you to select from.
The results of this round of consultation, will decide the final style for construction documentation to be prepared for final Council approval, tender and construction.
Drawings and artists impressions of each are below, together with further details on what the skateable elements in each Option are.
The Street Plaza style Skate Park forms part of a wider On-Site Sports Facility precinct, which will also include delivery of a new oval sports field (or 2 rectangular fields), a 2 storey sports multi-purpose building (sports amenities and community centre), a dog exercise park, and car parking. The other elements to be delivered are defined in our Planning Agreement with Council, which has previously been exhibited for community input. The overall precinct will also feature seating, picnic tables, bubblers, amenities, bike racks and landscaping.
