Finishing touches for new Nambour skate park
  • Tuesday 28 October 2014

A multi-functional activity centre that caters for all ages will be unveiled in Nambour tomorrow at the corner of Matthew and Ann Streets.

The town’s first purpose built district skate park and youth activity precinct is ready for action and will be road tested by the Sunshine Coast’s most skilled skateboard riders at tomorrow morning’s official opening.

Division 10 Councillor Greg Rogerson said the $850,000 facility will provide a unique recreational focal point for Nambour.

“This is a very exciting development for the entire Nambour community, particularly our youngsters who now have a fantastic facility with plenty of rails, ramps and jumps right in the middle of town where they can relax and hone their skills in a number of sports and activities,” he said.

“Future plans for the Nambour Skate Park and Youth Activity Precinct include the addition of a basketball half-court, shade structures, terrace seating, pathways, shade trees, climbing structures and community event spaces.”
The skate park also features a proud piece of Nambour’s history - an enormous 35-tonne sculpture of a set of cogs and gears from the old Moreton Sugar Mill.

A special community day will also be held at the new skate park on Saturday, November 1 from 10am.
