The Central Highlands Region Council funded Mobile Funbox was set up in Progress Park at Dingo this week, on a concrete slab installed through the Dingo Community Reference Group flexible funding project. The mobile skate park will be travelling to Duaringa in the coming weeks.
General Manager Communities Daniel Fletcher said the skate park is a great outcome for the youth of Duaringa and Dingo.
‘We are very excited to be able to provide young people with the facilities of a skate park,’ he said.
‘With the closest skate park in Bluff, we’ve looked for a solution to provide Duaringa and Dingo with a skate park for some time.
‘The mobile set-up is a perfect solution that benefits the entire region.
‘If we have an event coming up elsewhere, it can be easily moved to the location.
‘It just needs a concrete slab to sit on.’
The award-winning Mobile Funbox is the latest innovative design of portable skate park. Mounted on a standard dual-axle trailer, the all-steel constructed Funbox unfolds using hydraulics, to a platform in the centre with ramps to all four sides.
Its all-steel constructed modular design means the ramps are easy to maintain and repair compared to fixed concrete or mixed material ramps.
