    The Margaret River Youth Precinct will continue its transformation with works to upgrade the skate park set to start on Monday 9 October 2017.


    A viewing platform will be set up enabling residents to monitor progress and guided site tours organised at set stages during the construction period.


    Skate park users are invited to say ‘adios’ to the existing Margaret River Skate Park at the Adios Skate Park Fiesta celebration on Friday 6 October, until the reopening in approximately six months’ time.


    Due to grant funding shortfalls, the precinct masterplan will be delivered in stages, with the first stage toilet renovations and Zone Room access upgrades already completed.


    Second stage works include upgrades to the skate park with a 3 meter deep skate bowl, new shade structure and lighting, pump track, BBQ and parkour area, as well as natured based play features.
    A plan to deliver the remaining stages will be considered by Council once the detailed designs and costings have been completed.


    Shire President Ian Earl asked the public to be patient during the closure and touted the improved facilities to come. “We all know how much the skate park will be missed during this time,” he said.
    “Where possible we encourage you to visit our other skate parks in Cowaramup and Augusta or consider car-pooling between parents and head up to Busselton.”


    “The upgrade will provide an excellent space for young people and families to spend time outdoors and will also open up opportunities to hold large-scale community events and competitions which is a fantastic outcome for our residents.”


    Shire Human and Community Services Manager Nigel Anderson said he was impressed by the way design contractors, Convic, had brought the Community Design Group’s concept plan to life. “I’d like to thank all those who gave their input into the new skate park design,” he said. “There were a number of fantastic ideas put forward by the Community Design Group to ensure all users now and into the future will be served well.

    “Convic have done a brilliant job of taking these ideas on board and providing a robust masterplan to carry us forward.”


    A number of additional features earmarked in the precinct masterplan will be reliant on public donations.
    The current detailed design drawings including a 3D representation of the precinct is available on the Shire’s Your Say website.


    Community members can help fund additional park upgrades donating to gofundme.com/margaret-river-skatepark.


    During construction the Zone Room and Scout Hall will still be accessible to users with the Zone Room road access way becoming a no-through road.

    The meeting followed last week’s formal acceptance of the contract by Convic, who won a competitive tendering process to complete the upgrade works.

    The kick-start meeting to progress detailed design and construction of the Margaret River Youth Precinct was held between officers from the Shire of Augusta Margaret River and skate park contractor Convic this week.

    The meeting followed last week’s formal acceptance of the contract by Convic, who won a competitive tendering process to complete the upgrade works.

    Shire Human and Community Services Manager Nigel Anderson said he was confident Convic would deliver an outstanding project for both community members and visitors to enjoy.

    “The first iteration of the Margaret River skate park was constructed by Convic in 1997 as their inaugural project,” he said.

    “It was executed beautifully at the time and quickly became a much-loved and well-used community facility.

    “We aim to further expand and improve the park which has held up well beyond its projected lifespan.

    “It’s great to have Convic back on board, now with 20 years experience, a host of great ideas and passionate staff to pull off the project.”

    Convic Design Manager Jason Geralis said he was excite to return to birthplace of the company and the site of our first skate park.

    “The Margaret River Skate Park was the catalyst for the growth of youth facilities across the state.

    “There has been an evolution of modern youth and skate culture across Australia since then, but even now the Margaret River Skate Park remains relevant and still represents the unique skate identity of the region.

    “CONVIC are proud to have contributed to this legacy and even more proud that we will now contribute to this important next phase in the development of the youth space upon its 20 year anniversary.”

    Mr Geralis said he Convic staff looked forward to delivering a community facility to suit a wide range of demographics.

    “We look forward to delivering not only a skate park, but a youth space, which promises to be all-action, all-abilities and all-inclusive,” he said.

    Upgrades to the Youth Precinct due for completion in mid-2018 include skate park improvements, new skate facilities, parkour equipment, barbeques, seating, shade, landscaping and pathways.

    The Shire has applied for additional grant funds to construct Zone Room spill out area shade structures, various provisional play equipment, individual skate features and landscaping elements.

    Community members can help fund additional park upgrades donating to gofundme.com/margaret-river-skatepark.
