The new Deception Bay Skate Park officially opened to four and two wheeled enthusiasts on Saturday and the Deception Bay community showed up in droves to support this brand-new development.

The Federal Government invested $156,000 into the $1.5 million project, working together with the Moreton Bay Regional Council under Phase 3 of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

The project scope included the design and construction of an upgrade to the existing skate park with the objective to provide quality and safe skating facilities to encourage community engagement in physical activity and to meet the future infrastructure demand for skating.

The Skate Park was originally projected to be completed by June 2023, however the Moreton Bay Regional Council worked tirelessly to deliver this project two months ahead of schedule and the community are now already enjoying the benefit of this newest feature to the Deception Bay area.

The Federal Member for Petrie, the Hon Luke Howarth has said “I am pleased be able to deliver this much needed upgrade for the Deception Bay community in conjunction with the Moreton Bay Regional Council. The old skate park was worn down and out of date. The concrete used for the new skate park is much smoother and safer, meaning less injuries for skaters, and obstacles designed for both beginners and those more experienced.”

“Youth engagement in physical activity is such an important initiative in our communities and the PCYC down at Deception Bay do a great job in keeping young people engaged with positive recreational programs and sporting activities.”
