Kurri Kurri Skatepark

The skate park is located to the north west of the Kurri Kurri Aquatic Centre in Margaret Johns Park and caters for the townships of Kurri Kurri, Weston, Abermain and Heddon Greta. The skate park is utilised on a daily basis year round by young people for skateboarding, BMX and scooter riding, and rollerblading. Additionally, the Youth Off The Streets Outreach Program runs every Friday afternoon/evening, and skate competitions and music events are held on an annual basis during Youth Week. Kurri Kurri Skate Park is a local level facility catering for beginner to intermediate users and consists of two sections, which are at capacity. The most recent section covers an area of approximately 200m2, and is a prefabricated traditional style facility with basic transition and street elements. Specific active elements include a roll in, wedge bank, quarter pipe, grind block, spine, and fun-box with a grind block traversing along and down. The original section covers an area of approximately 304.2m2 and is an ‘old school’ style concrete snake run. It is outdated in design, and rough and bumpy. The prefabricated section has gaps in joins at the base of the spine, where the two modular quarter pipes meet, and where the two separate sections of the grind block meet. Kurri Kurri Skate Park is not immediately serviced by basic amenities; however there is a public toilet approximately 200 metres away, and a BBQ, picnic table and shade structure approximately 50 metres away. Lighting is provided on the north western section of the skate and BMX Park, but does not sufficiently light the whole facility. Low level lighting can attract people to the facility which can lead to anti-social behaviour. On the other hand, high level lighting attracts positive active users, which can deter anti-social behaviour. Adjacent land uses include residential development, bush land, public open space, a main road, and sporting facilities. An internal pathway network is present, which connects the skate park with other facilities. There is a bus stop bus stop on Northcote Street which services the skate park. The skate park is highly visible from Northcote Street, Boundary Street, the Kurri Kurri Aquatic Centre and other park users. However, there is a blind spot behind the quarter pipes backing onto the bush land. There is sufficient space for expansion; however the skate park is located in a low lying section of the site prone to localised flooding, is easily accessible by motorbikes creating a safety issue, and is boarded by bush land causing a visibility issue.
