Convic, the awesome team behind Bateau Yard skatepark, has been engaged to assist Central Coast Council in developing a new inclusive Recreation Area in Kariong.

The area will include a pump track, playground and skate park within the Kariong Oval precinct on Curringa Road – between two plantings of mature Eucalypt trees.

Construction of the Kariong Oval Recreation Area is expected to commence in early 2022. 

Want to give your feedback to help shape the design?

Workshop: You can attend a pre-design workshop (hosted by Convic) on Thursday 11 March at Kariong Community Hall at 3.30pm and 5.30pm. The workshops are open to everyone that has an interest in the project and wants to have a say in the way it is designed and the different elements that can be included. Bookings are not essential but COVID check in on the day is.
