Council will partner with the community to co-design and develop a new all-ages, all abilities Skate Park facility at Harold Phillips Park in Garbutt.

Prospective park renewals including Skate Park creations can create a better-quality open space environment for everyone to enjoy, help keep our city cooler, and support biodiversity in our local area. Park renewals including activation upgrades contribute significantly to the livability and neighbourhood character of the identified suburb and are highly valued by the community.

The Queensland Government provided $1 million to Townsville City Council to upgrade Harold Phillips Park, including a new skate park, to enable Queenslanders to participate in sports and recreation activities.

This exciting evolutional project could potentially consider a complete renewal to the existing Skate Park features within Harold Phillips Park conducted through extensive community consultation that could modernise and provide a quality open space Skate Park Hub environment that can be fully utilised by all ages and abilities.

Council is now inviting our community to participate in the second stage of consultation requesting your attendance at the Skate Park Co-Design in Partnership, Key User Group Workshop in creating the Council's vision of a unique family-friendly activated Skate Park for a truly iconic and appealing destination for our community to enjoy.

The council advises that the delivery of this project will be conducted in stages with Stage 1 consisting of an understanding of the community needs complete now the project is now moving into stage 2: 30% - 50% Skate Park design. Additional stages in the following months so please register and or follow this project to continue the journey with an anticipated completion date by June 2022 with the construction of the skate park completed by 2024.

How can you get involved?

Council values community feedback on all our projects and invites residents, visitors, and user groups of the park to participate in this Co-Design in Partnership Workshop, Thursday, 21 May 2022.

How Long is the community consultation period?

Council will actively engage with residents, educational providers, and prominent user groups to ensure co-design in collaboration, educational opportunities, and open space activation recourses are provided that will connect the community and provide a free destination for families to be physically active and socially connected.
