Pizzey Park skatepark in Gold Coast

published in sb magazine 6/2023

Designed as an extension to the existing iconic Pizzey Skatepark on the Gold Coast, the park has been developed to be able to host major competitions and events and allow for Olympic level training with large expanses of space for temporary grandstands and judging. Unlike the traditional approach of segregation, CONVIC fostered the idea to create a multifunctional place for a mixed demographic to be using the space at once.

The skatepark has already become the home of the Australian Skateboarding team, providing a space that is utilized for training leading into the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. The design has various competition level „street style“ obstacles with rails, hubbas, kickers and granite

ledges that range from low level to extremely advanced, and is the first of its kind in Australia. The „Pizzey“ skateable sign is a stand out feature that will provide an iconic element that puts Pizzey and the Gold Coast on the map for skateboarding in Australia and the world. A key driver in the delivery of a successful recreation space was to provide a destination for the local, state, and national community. This was undertaken by providing areas that enable end users of different abilities with zones that were tailored to their skill level while ensuring that these spaces promote social inclusion and skill progression amongst end users.
