Project Details

Lake Waro skatepark in Whangerei is undergoing major reconstruction and redesign with a complete overhaul of the original park.

The new skatepark design encompasses two areas; a large bowl and street area with quarter-pipes on either side. The use of the park area has been maximised in our design, with the aim of using as much of the area as possible while maintaining a natural feel around the skatepark area.

The bowl features a to vert deep end with hips leading to the shallow end backing onto the main area of the skatepark via a spine transition.

The street area focuses on a large box feature which has an array of obstacles designed into it:

  • Half pyramid
  • Kicker-to-kicker flat gap
  • A large ledge with kickers on either side of it and gap at the end
  • A long hubba leading down one side of the box
  • A long rail/down-rail
  • Kicker to flat-rail

Other features of the street area include:

  • A round rail with curve at the end
  • Small box/manual pad

On the other end of the park are two levels of quarter-pipes with a kicker on the deck which rolls into to the lower quarter-pipe, both quarter-pipes lead into the street area.
