Exciting Upgrade For Peregian Beach Skate Park

The Peregian Beach Skate Park is set to undergo a major upgrade starting in June.

Noosa Mayor Frank Wilkie said the upgrade will improve the experience for skateboarders and scooter riders of all ages and skill levels.

“The design reflects advice from local skaters to ensure the new park builds on what they like about the existing facility, while improving safety,” Cr Wilkie said.

“The upgraded park will feature three zones designed for beginners and advanced users alike, ensuring a space that everyone can enjoy.”

Key considerations in the design include using the existing footprint, retaining the current shade sail, minimising the impact on the Norfolk Island Pines and coastal vegetation, mitigating coastal zone impacts, and enhancing drainage for the skate bowl.

Minister for Local Government Meaghan Scanlon said the Miles Government was proud to invest in communities through the South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program.

“We’ve already seen the benefits the SEQ Community Stimulus Program is delivering for local economies, tradies and families right across this region.

“I look forward to seeing the lasting benefits this project will deliver for the local community.”

Construction is set to begin this month, with completion anticipated by August 2024. During this period, the skate park will be closed, and safety barriers will be installed to restrict access. However, access to the beach, playground, amenities, and markets will remain open as usual.

“We appreciate the community’s patience during the construction phase,” Cr Wilkie said.

“We are confident that the upgraded skate park will be a fantastic addition to Peregian Beach, providing a safer and more enjoyable environment for all users.”
