Patience requested while site being completed

Some potential skate park users have recently entered the unfinished site via construction fencing. They have been using either skateboards or scooters on the newly set concrete. Cameras and community members are keeping a close eye on the site until the site is officially opened. Thames Coromandel District Council staff are requesting patience while the project is completed.

We are asking that kids remain patient until the park is completed and handed over to the public in a safe clean state for us all to enjoy. This is a community project that a lot of local time and resources have gone into and it would be very disappointing to have a few kids jeopardise the completion by having an accident, being caught in the worksite or defacing the park before completion.

Skate park delayed by substandard concrete pour

Contractors are hoping to have the skate park completed by Christmas. They have indicated that it will be a close call as the project has been delayed with a substandard concrete pour which had to be removed and re-poured. There is a possibility that the basketball court may be finished at a later date.

Old half pipe planned to be relocated to Hahei

The Thames Coromandel District Council is working with the community to investigate the possibility of relocating the old mini half pipe to Hahei. The half pipe is scheduled to be dismantled in late December.
