This is the final concept plan moving forward to detailed design

The City of Mandurah is in the process of designing a new Recreation Precinct on the Western Foreshore. The Recreation Precinct will include the development of a new Play Space and the redevelopment of the Mandurah (Bill Bowler) Skate Park into a destination Skate and Activity Space for our community and visitors alike.

The City engaged Convic to deliver the concept design for the Skate and Activity Space. Last year, Convic facilitated a series community workshops where participants helped inform the design outcomes. The result is a unique destination level facility featuring 3 skate zones and surrounding recreation areas. The facility caters for skaters, BMX and scooter riders of all levels. The central lawn opens up to activation nodes including a half basketball court. Coupled with extensive terrace seating, this area creates various forms of passive and active recreation for the whole family to get involved in or sit and take in the spectacle.

For a full recap of the design journey and to see the final concept design check out the Final Concept Report.

Current Status

Convic have been awarded the contract for the skate park 'Design and Construct' Tender. The project is now progressing into the exciting delivery phase, with works due to commence on site in May 2020.

Through the progression of the concept into the detailed construction design, there has been some improvements made enhance the experience for users. These include:

  • Bowl area deep end step down extension removed and platform extended to allow for more safer spectator zone and more useable space. Balustrade incorporated for safety and leaning area.

  • Central transition flow area improved with better flow, direct runs, more splines and hips to improve function for all rider types.

  • Street area enhancements including granite slabs and blocks added, providing sculptural elements and real ‘street plaza’ feel.

  • Shade structures upgraded from tensile to solid roof structures.

Project Timeline

  • Mid 2020 - Existing skate park demolished and site works commence
  • Early 2020 - Skate and Activity Area and new toilets complete
  • Mid 2021 - Play Space and rest of reserve upgrades complete
