Views sought on plan for Aldinga skate park

The City of Onkaparinga is seeking your feedback on its plan for a new skate park in Aldinga.

The draft concept plan was designed by CONVIC, a world leader in skate park and youth space design and construction, following community consultation in December 2023.

It incorporates lights for night-time use, irrigated turf, benches, shelter, trees, footpaths and an unsealed car park for 40 cars.

The design meets community expectations for a skate park that can be used by a range of users of all ages.

It will cater for skateboarders, BMXers, roller skaters and other rollers.

With a beginner mini ramp, an intermediate dish and an advanced bowl, it is suitable for those from beginner to advanced level.

The skate park is also designed to host events and competitions and to offer a space for socialising and spectating, incorporating benches, a central shelter and surrounding irrigated turf for seating and viewing.

New trees will be planted around the skate park and along the paths leading from the car park and to the nearby football oval and public toilets. Views of the rolling hills further south are a key feature of the design.

Community safety underpins the overall design with the adoption of CPTED – crime prevention through environmental design – principles.

The project is part of the council’s Aldinga Sports Park Master Plan, a comprehensive redevelopment of sporting and community facilities on Port Road in Aldinga.

The council received a grant of $1.3 million from the state government to design and construct the skate park.
