Culburra Beach Youth Skate Park Project

In April 2015, a critically important youth skate park project was launched and approved to proceed by CBPA Inc. This project is an urgent priority for our children, youth, families, visitors and community due to a private-land community skate and bike space being closed and demolished. No available parks or recreational areas are currently available placing our youth at risk.

The Youth Skate Park Project team are currently working with Shoalhaven City Council to get a new dedicated safe and secure youth skate park developed at Culburra Beach. Through extensive community consultation and support from local youth, residents, visitors, community clubs, schools, sports clubs, businesses and the wider community. The community are working together to deliver this project in 2016.

Costs associated with planning and building a new youth skate park and space are expensive, the project team have launched a range of fundraising campaigns and events plus seeking support from local, state and federal government. Many local businesses and companies are being contacted for support. If you can help, contact the project team. Together we can build a new youth park in 2016, right here in Culburra Beach.
