Lincoln Community Park/Skate Park

Current location in the site

The Lincoln Domain Skatepark has been redesigned to better suit younger skaters and scooter riders. The park was expected to be completed earlier this year, however Council staff decided to tweak the skate park design as it was deemed to be unsuitable for younger people.

The new skate park is expected to be completed by the end of June, depending on weather.

Skatepark features

The Community Park/Skatepark will be located outside the front of the Lincoln Event Centre, near the existing play area. This location provides good visibility of the skate area, helping to improve the safety of the area.

The new design will have a small bowl for learners leading to an intermediate bowl which will have lots of different carve lines as well as air and transfer lines.

Street features include both large and small hubba, ledges and rails. The existing 1200mm quarter pipe will remain.

The main design changes include:

  • Forming the existing bowl into a mini bowl which is more suitable for younger/learner skater and scooter riders. This is a 9m long 600mm deep keyhole bowl
  • Swapping the stairs for a large hubba ramp and rail
  • Constructing a new 1200mm deep bowl, a ditch-style banked area and smaller flat ledges and rail.

Dimensions  

The total area is approximately 400m2.

It is 36m long east–west, and 18m wide north–south at its widest point.

Final design

The design of the facility has been prepared after extensive consultation with the local community, schools, young people, potential users of the park, and the Selwyn Youth Council. The design, developed by experienced skate park designer Dave North, incorporates a number of features that have been suggested during consultation.
