Moreton Bay Regional Council has awarded a $471,000 tender for the construction of a new youth plaza and skate park at the Harris Avenue Sports Grounds at Narangba.

Division 11 Councillor Darren Grimwade said the outdoor youth area would include everything from a skate bowl, rails and ramps to seating and shelters to provide a safe space for young people to skate, scoot or cycle and keep fit and active.

“The new youth space will include a number of specially-designed features to challenge skaters such as elevated banks, split levels, moguls and ledges, as well as a number of shade structures for people to use adding to the existing basketball hoop,” Cr Grimwade said.

Cr Grimwade said as part of the project, council had worked closely with the community through a number of online surveys and face-to-face consultation sessions to help shape and develop the youth plaza and skate facility.

“I want to personally thank everyone who had their say during the consultation period for providing input on what they wanted to see at this facility. I’d particularly like to also acknowledge the local neighbourhood watch, Narangba Valley State High School and P&C committee for their feedback and support.”

Construction is expected to begin in July 2017 and be completed by late November 2017, weather permitting.
