Seeking your ideas on Gunnedah's Youth Space

4 July, 2024

Gunnedah Shire Council is asking the community – from skateboarders to parents and kids who just want to hang out with friends – to help build a vision for the Gunnedah Youth Space.

After extensive community consultation in the lead-up to the Gunnedah Shire Council Open Space Strategy, adopted in 2022, one of the key recommendations was to investigate upgrades to the Gunnedah Skate Park on the corner of View Street and Wandobah Road.

Council is now asking people of all ages what they would like to see as part of a redeveloped space, and has engaged experts in skate park design, construction, and planning, Convic, to develop a concept plan.

A new community survey is now available that will allow people to share their ideas.

“We encourage the community to take the opportunity to have their say and work with our consultant to help build a concept that includes the features they are interested in,” Gunnedah Shire Council Director Infrastructure Services Jeremy Bartlett said.

“The survey looks at the sort of activities people are using the space for now, and what they hope to see in the future. The survey includes examples of skatepark designs and additional activities and allows people to expand on their ideas.”

The concept will be used to source grant funding to create the new-look Gunnedah Youth Space in the future.

The Gunnedah Youth Space survey is available at and everyone who has an interest in the space is urged to complete it.
