Moreton Bay Regional Council is seeking feedback on new concept designs for skate park upgrades at Albany Creek, Morayfield and Deception Bay.
In early 2020, Council engaged industry experts, CONVIC, to assist with the development and design of these upgrades. Now after considering the initial ideas provided by the community, the concept designs are ready for your feedback.
Council is committed to providing public spaces that promote inclusion, and active and healthy lifestyles for the community. As a result, Council is planning to upgrade several of our skate facilities across the region.
In 2019, Council worked with industry professionals to carry out a detailed BMX and Skate Park Facilities Audit. The audit assessed the functionality, structural condition and strategic location of each of our twenty-three skate park facilities. From this, Council identified opportunities to improve all of the skate parks through significant investment in maintenance and renewal. Council has also identified opportunities for seven skate parks to be redesigned and upgraded; these are:
- Albany Creek, Morayfield, Deception Bay that are being consulted on now
- North Lakes (Aurora Boulevard Park), Bray Park (Les Hughes Sporting Complex), Redcliffe and Caboolture that Council will work with community to develop concepts for over the next few years.

Council sought feedback regarding the concepts plans via a survey and forum between Monday 8 February 2021 and Friday 26 February 2021. Council would like to thank participants for their feedback which will contribute to finalising the upgrade plans to the skate parks.
