The delivery of Regional Recreation Park responds to the clients original vision of a public destination that supports a healthy lifestyle; ensures a stronger experience of community and; emphasizes the sense of “fun and adventure”.
The Stage 1 concept was developed to have an emphasis on active recreational facilities and to function as the southeast gateway to both the park and town centre. The main backbone to this space is a contemporary street style skate plaza incorporating a series of transitional elements such as a vert wall and quarter pipes. This facility has an integral relationship and connection with the surrounding landscape... a “pumping”, playful and alive epicenter to the region.
In addition to the skate plaza, the park features a multipurpose half court, fitness equipment, mini football field and young adult playground equipment, along with viewing area and break-out spaces, to provide a raft of active recreation opportunities for the Flagstone community. Along with the skate park, these facilities are integrated into the natural site level changes that fall towards Little Sandy Creek Tributary.
Terraced seating and a programmable plaza area provide a space for community events such as markets and outdoor performances and highlights the gateway functionality.
