Alfred Cox Skate Park

Re-opened after a $3 million-dollar upgrade, Alfred Cox Skate Park (also known as Gisborne Skate Park) has transformed into a facility worthy of Olympians and locals alike.

Designed by specialist architects Rich Landscapes for community organisation Tairiwhiti Adventure , the modern, international standard facility encourages current and future athletes of all abilities to develop their skills, as well as hosting national competitions.

The inclusion of Urban Effects’ quality, locally manufactured street furniture enhances community connection and inclusion at the recreation hub which attracts hundreds of visitors daily, providing plenty of spaces for friends and family to stay (and skate) longer.

Hydration is critical in such adrenalin-fuelled, high impact sports, so it made sense to provide three different styles of water fountain across the park.

The heavy duty Hydrate Accessible Fountain features a push button activated bubbler perfect for wheelchair users, while the similarly stylish and equally accessible Hydrate Z340 includes both bubbler and bottle filler. The Fuente-R Fountain suits almost any location with its unique Corten Steel finish and decorative drain grill.

When it’s time to rest and take a breath, the stylish simplicity and practicality of the Woodland Deluxe Park Seats ensures there’s plenty of room for large groups to gather and chat, perhaps share a meal.

The eco-friendly Urban 1900 Double Electric BBQ offers a stream-lined design with duo cooking plate, superior temperature control and dramatic power-saving features.
