Thank you to everyone who provided feedback and ideas at Park Day and via the online survey. The early public engagement closed on Friday 15 February. There will be another opportunity later in 2019 for everyone to provide feedback on the preferred designs before construction begins.

We have taken all of the feedback and put together a Design Brief and we now have a group of Designers working to pull together concept designs for the Council to consider. Concept designs are to be submitted to the Council by Friday 10 May.

Rich Landscapes have been appointed to design the skate park elements and once the other design party/parties are chosen we will work through a detailed design phase to ensure that the complete park flows and feels cohesive.

Further updates during the life of this project will be made on this site so watch this space!

Project Overview

As outlined in the Long Term Plan 2018 – 2028, the Maidstone Max Upgrade Project consists of a complete redevelopment of the existing facility to ensure the play area continues to be a regional destination.

New features for the park could include: modern, exciting, and interactive equipment to suit all ages and abilities, a dedicated toddler’s and infant’s play area, improvements to the skate and scooter park, designed with the help of users of the facility and to suit current demand as well as a cluster of other youth play spaces. The upgrade also provides an opportunity to improve accessibility for those with special needs.

$3.804 million was earmarked for this project in the Council’s Long Term Plan 2018 – 2028.

The project is scheduled to be completed during 2019 – 2020.
