Community Skatepark

Home: Welcome

What is our aim

Our aim is to design and implement a recreational facility (skatepark) where tamariki (children) and rangatahi (youth) can have fun and be active, a place where they can just be themselves and hang out with their friends, family and the wider community.

  • ensure their voices are heard and to research what they want and need for this project

  • have access to social and economic opportunities. 

  • enjoy a better quality of life

  • reach their potential as young people in society. 

  • enable them to have stable and healthy relationships.
