The Albany Creek skate park on Old Northern Road, along with the skate parks in Morayfield and Deception Bay, are getting a major redesign.
In line with this development, Moreton Bay Council has opened a feedback page where residents could share their inputs before work on these outdoor community facilities could proceed.
Mayor Peter Flannery said that $3.8 million has been set aside for this project under the Council’s Park and Sporting Facilities. He hopes that many skaters, BMX riders and scooters will share their ideas and comments about the designs since they will be using and enjoying the facilities the most.
Mr Flannery said that the range of designs for all three parks was based on 400 survey responses Council received during the initial consultation process in 2020.
The community told Council that they want a family-friendly skate park, with “adequate lighting and shade” and challenging obstacles for the skaters, scooters and riders to improve their skills.
The mayor also said that skate parks in North Lakes, Caboolture, Bray Park and Redcliffe will be up for consultation as well whilst these initial projects are underway.
The Council will need your say about the Albany Creek skate park design until Friday, 26 Feb 2021.
