  • 25 May 2018

The Alexandra Headland Skate and BMX facility is a major district level facility which caters for skateboarders, scooters, bmx riders and bladers.

Phase 2 community engagement survey now open.

Purpose

Council is planning to refurbish and upgrade the existing skate and BMX park at Alexandra Headland.

Community engagement

Council invited the public to provide feedback on how the skate and BMX park could be upgraded in May 2016. This was Phase 1 of the community engagement process for this project. Two further phases of community engagement will follow in the near future.

Phase 1 community engagement closed 22 May 2016.

Where to from here

The project will involve three phases of community engagement to allow users of the park to share their ideas and provide input into the concept design. A specialised team including experienced skate park designers will produce the design.

After the initial ideas are collected, the project team will collate and review all feedback and develop a draft concept design. The design will be presented to the community for further feedback as part of the second stage of community engagement in late 2016.

Updates on the project will be made available on this website.

Construction is expected to start in April 2017.

Background

The need for this upgrade has been driven by the degrading / aging asset as well as the current and future growth needs as identified in the Sunshine Coast Skate and BMX Plan 2011-2020.

The Alexandra Headland Skate and BMX Facility is classified as a Major District Facility.

The facility was built in c1995 with additions in c1998. The facility is the most well used, publicly recognised facility on the coast. The main activity area is approximately 940m2 and its high level of usage results in overcrowding. The facility comprises a half pipe, transitions, flat banks and some ledges. Maintenance issues include erosion and wear areas to the grass mounds; corrosion and rust to the existing lights and coping; insufficient drainage and limited seating and shade provision.
