Project Details

Wellington City Council engaged RICH Landscapes on a tight deadline to redesign the existing Pukehuia Park Skatepark (formerly Newlands Skatepark) as a component of a comprehensive redevelopment of the entire park. RICH Landscapes delivered on their programme working with local users to put forward a design proposing the removal of the north and south-western corners of the existing facility and the extension of retaining walls where required along the periphery of the park. Platforms with quarterpipe features were built off these facing into skate park with a small mini bowl with varied coping heights and spine ramp set into the South-western corner. New concrete coping was installed on the existing quarterpipe extension with its own unique detail. Several box and rail features were also worked into the Eastern bank providing new play opportunities. A couple concrete lips in the existing park restricting flow have also been fixed providing new lines of movement.

"The facility was elongated due to the characteristics of the site. The Skate Path was a great idea that allows for a 120m long flow line with a diverse range of obstacles."
