Byron Council is planning to build a new $2.6 million skatepark and recreation precinct at Sandhills at Byron Bay.
The skatepark is planned for the area near the existing Byron Youth Activities Centre (YAC), the library and the Sandhills Childcare Centre.
The project is being funded by the NSW Government’s Road and Election Infrastructure Commitment Grant and Council.
An initial concept of the skatepark was done in 2018 and Council is now at the stage of developing detailed plans. CONVIC, regarded as one of the world’s best skatepark designers, has been engaged to design the new Byron Bay skatepark.
