What to Expect
The Mercury Bay Skatepark Trust was established in May 2017 to drive and support the plans for a replacement to the existing skatepark.
Site of new Whitianga Skate park
The new Whitianga skatepark will be built adjacent to the existing site at Taylor's Mistake and will become a fun, safe place for all ages to skate.
Whitianga Skate park construction
To help make the skatepark project happen, the trust has received support and donations from local businesses and the Thames Coromandel District Council. The Mercury Bay Skate Park Trust has now reached it's fundraising target and anticipate that construction of the skate park will commence in July - August 2020
Donations for the Whitianga Skate Park construction
Any further donations are appreciated and can be deposited into the Mercury Bay Skatepark Trust bank account (03 1578 0110921 000). Please email Chris with your name, contact details and amount of the donation.
Design of Skate park at Taylors Mistake / Whakau Reserve
The design of the park is in three areas -
- A street drain run, with low and high obstacles
- An open flow section, incorporating some unique and challenging obstacles, that will range from beginner to intermediate riders
- A bowl section that will stand alone for intermediate to advanced riders, with quarter pipes
Please contact Chris if you would like contribute to the project or have any questions.
