Kids enjoying what Knox Park’s makeover has to offer. What will Kingscliff offer their youth?

The Kingscliff community is being invited to join in a conversation with council about a potential skate park and youth space in Kingscliff on Wednesday, 2 May.

It is a timely invitation following recent vandalism of the Kingscliff’s Rowan Robinson Park just days before its official opening. The vandals were using scooters to remove anti-skating lugs on park furniture.

Stewart Brawley, Council’s acting director community and natural resources, said there had been a lot of community interest in Kingscliff in recent months about the development of a skate park in the town.

‘At their meeting on 5 April, Tweed Shire councillors unanimously voted to hold a community roundtable discussion on the topic,’ Mr Brawley said.

Anyone who is 12 or older is invited to join the conversation to look at recreational facilities, in Kingscliff or elsewhere in the Tweed.

An independent facilitator will guide community discussion about youth recreational facilities, so Council can be better informed on community opinions about possible locations, design and park works associated with the development of any youth and recreation space in Kingscliff in the future.

Bookings are ESSENTIAL via www.kingscliffyouthspace.eventbrite.com.au. Bookings open at 10am on Friday 27 April and will close at 10am on Wednesday 2 May (day of the event). If you don’t have computer access, please call Council on (02) 6670 2400 during business hours.

For more information see the Open Space Strategy.
