Update December 2020: The skate park is opening to the public in time for the Christmas holidays. You may notice that the landscaping is still to be completed but the skatepark surface is ready to use. Temporary fencing will remain around the park as our contractors break for Christmas and New Year. Please note, there'll be some interruptions to use in January and February when they arrive back to complete landscaping and carpark works. In the meantime, please use the formal access points and bins provided and happy skating!
Bulahdelah's brand new skatepark at (Alum) Mountain Park got underway on 24 February 2020, was halted due to COVID19 border closures with Queensland, and resumed in May, only to be put on hold again when the second Queensland border closure was implemented.
This project has been over two years in the making and is the result of extensive consultation between Council, the State Government and community members, with the amazing support and drive of the Bulahdelah Lions Club.
A pop-up session was held on site on Tuesday 10 December 2019, to reveal the design plans to the community and these can be viewed in the supporting documents on the right side of this page.
An on site meeting with the contractor took place in January 2020, followed by site establishment with fencing and signage.
Construction was expected to take around 8-10 weeks, but was significantly delayed as a result of COVID-19 border closures.
Bulahdelah Lions Club raised an enormous $181,000 for this project, and together with $79,000 from MidCoast Council and $50,000 from the Australian Government’s Building our Future fund, will ensure this is one of the best skateparks in the region.
