The Byron Bay Skate and Recreation Space provides a dynamic and activated central community hub for all members of the community within a beautiful natural setting.

Convic worked together with the Bundjalung of Byron Bay Arakwal people to develop an art, planting, interpretive signage and way finding strategy. It is the first skatepark in Australia to incorporate local indigenous dialect throughout the precinct including the facility name, ‘Jarjumirr Park’ with each area of the park having both a local indigenous dialect and English name. In addition, throughout the precinct, bush tucka plant species paired with interpretive signage educates youth to use the local Aboriginal dialect and learn about cultural heritage in a place of play. This process was undertaken through close collaboration with Arakwal elders to ensure all interpretation was accurate and respectful of local culture.
