Skatepark plan out 

How the park will look 

The final concept designs for the Te Awamutu Skatepark at Centennial Park have been released.

Acting Community Services Manager Brad Ward said Council had taken feedback into account following a consultation process in December which attracted a strong response.

A total of 90 people completed a survey and providing input. Jake Gunn and Jhai Fellingham both won a skateboard as part of the feedback process.

The new concept plan is a refresh and upgrade of the existing skatepark in Centennial Park, Te Awamutu. Plans are also out for an upgrade of the Dominion Road, Cambridge, complex.

“Following the feedback, the changes we have made to the concept designs are creating a hang out zone between the skatepark and basketball court that has shade and seating.”

A further opportunity to comment will be provided next Wednesday between 7 and 8pm on line via the Zoom app. For details go to

Participants will be able to join the webinar where Antony Leggett from Acid NZ will explain the Te Awamutu concept plan in-depth.

Acid NZ, alongside head contractor Fluhler Contracting Limited, were the successful tenderers for the Play Spaces Renewal and Development Contract which includes the skate parks design and builds.

The next step in the project will be starting construction on the Te Awamutu Skatepark in late March or early April. The project will take about six months.

Council is also looking at sites for Pirongia and Kihikihi skateparks.
