PORT AUGUSTA SKATE PARK
A truly unique project, Port Augusta City Council sought a world-class facility to seamlessly meld with the region’s award-winning foreshore.
The colourful and dynamic skate space reflects the rich amber tones of the surrounding coastal dunes, set against the centerpiece of a curved timber wave structure. The wave simultaneously acts as a skate feature, shaded area and, being the first of its kind, an instantly recognisable sculptural element. A mix of hard and soft landscaping mitigates access issues and provides safe vantage points to watch the action.
“CONVIC’S EXPERIENCED SKATEPARK DESIGNERS AND LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS WORKED CLOSELY WITH THE COUNCIL AND LOCAL USERS TO CREATE A UNIQUE AND VALUED COMMUNITY SPACE THAT COMPLIMENTED OUR AWARD-WINNING FORESHORE DESIGN. THE HIGH STANDARDS OF OUR FACILITY ARE REFLECTED BY ITS FREQUENT USAGE FROM BOTH LOCAL AND NEIGHBOURING CITY USERS.”
– Craig Dearlove, Port Augusta City Council
