LARA SKATEPARK

Playce & Baseplate worked collaboratively to create a feature skatepark that would complement broader parkland improvements designed by Hansen Partnership that included a large central lawn, play space and events area.

The skatepark design was created initially based on creating a storm water over flow retention basin for the reserve. A feature snake run could be used for both skate and be a drainage catchment during floods. This has since evolved into a more traditional skate space once drainage modelling was revised. The users met with the Playce team and the resultant park contains both a large open bowl and street section to meet the local users’ requirements and is proving a massive hit with the locals
