It'll be built for the kids, but parents - this one's for you.
Plans have been revealed for 3SIXTY, a proposed new parent-friendly indoor skate park in Wollongong.
A development application has been lodged with Wollongong City Council for the park, which would be located at Spring Hill.
Josh Wiffen often takes his son Azrael to Berkeley outdoor skate park, and said he would like to see an indoor option in the area.
He said the businesses that have inflatables, trampolines and rock climbing indoors do well, so if the developer does it the right way with a park that caters to skateboarders and scooters then they "are onto a winner".
"It will be particularly good if it rains," he said.
"The tricky part will be getting the price right. If they have a birthday party option then it could be popular. Inflatable World and Flip Out's birthday rooms are always booked out."
To make way for the new venue, Hangtime Trampoline Park would be closed after five years, and the DA proposes to make alterations to the premises to accommodate the new skate park.
The 3SIXTY Skate Park design features a mix of ramp and street elements, as well as a café, party area, skate shop and seating.
The skate park area would comprise about 750sqm of the 1200sqm facility.
The proposal is a collaboration between business coach/entrepreneur Adrian D'Amico and businessman Brett Baker.
Mr Baker is managing director of Funscape, who have opened several indoor entertainment venues in Wollongong, including Hangdog Climbing Gym, Hangtime Trampoline Park, Breakout Bar and Escape Rooms, Revolution Laser Arena and Revolution Archery Tag.
Mr D'Amico said the proposal he'd had for the better part of ten years was finally starting to come to fruition.
While Mr D'Amico praised council's efforts to maintain its existing skate parks, he felt there was "nowhere to go for parents, no shade, no good coffee and no good food, or no one to mind the kids".
"However now as a father of three sons, I find myself spending most weekends battling the hot sun in search of the perfect skate park for the boys to have fun and to allow me to re-live my youth," he said.
"The kids had a ball but me, not so much. Most outdoor parks didn't have anywhere for parents to hang out and just relax, or anywhere to grab some food or a coffee.
"They also didn't offer any supervision, which was a challenge as I don't feel comfortable leaving my kids there by themselves."
The proposal is on public exhibition until October 11.
If approved, Mr D'Amico said their goal was to open the park in December.
