PORT MACQUARIE SKATE PARK
Constructed in a prominent foreshore location, the Port Macquarie Skate Park faced a number of design and construction challenges.
Significant geotechnical improvements to the subgrade were made, including excavating below the bowl to lay graded rock for improved drainage. This was then covered with compacted crusher dust for adequate compaction levels. Despite minor initial resistance to the project, construction proceeded smoothly, winning community support.
