The Yeppoon Lagoon project features two structures: a colourful mesh canopy over the skate park, and a pool-side architectural structure at the Lagoon. The skate park is located beside the newly constructed Yeppoon Lagoon, which is the “crown jewel” of the Precinct.
Yeppoon Skate Park features a 500m2 shade structure which provides shade protection to skaters all year round. The cable and shade cloth structure is an economical yet aesthetic design that is a feature structure in the precinct. The skate park construction was part of Stage 5 of the Yeppoon Lagoon redevelopment, which also includes a beach amphitheatre, road/pedestrian network upgrades, a kiosk, water play area, wave pool, mini golf course, multi-level car park and a car wash.
Stage 5 of the Yeppoon Town Centre and Foreshore revitalisation project was a venture jointly funded by the Livingstone Shire Council and Queensland and Australian Governments. 17136
