Wollongbar District Park

As residential development continues in Wollongbar, so does the need for a quality recreational open space for all the community to enjoy, Wollongbar District Park will fill that need! The park opened in February 2022 for the community to enjoy. 

The park includes:

  • public amenities and carparking
  • skate park, half-size basketball court, table tennis
  • multi-purpose circuit path with distance markers
  • exercise equipment
  • playground equipment including climbing net
  • BBQs and park furniture
  • landscaping, shade trees and native species gardens.

The park is located on the corner of Plateau Drive and Rifle Range Road in Wollongbar. Some members of our community may remember this site as the old drive-in movie theatre.

The park caters to many in the community and is great news for anyone who loves to keep active and being outdoors!

A shire-wide Community Facilities and Open Space Needs Analysis report was prepared in 2004 which identified the need for a district park within the Wollongbar Urban Expansion Area.

The district park for the Wollongbar area was proposed at the former Wollongbar Drive-in site on Plateau Drive in the Ballina Shire Open Space Strategy 2008 and the Ballina Shire Contributions Plan 2008 (BSCP). The BSCP also nominated the inclusion of a skate park at the site.

Council considered skate park facilities on the Alstonville Plateau in various locations; more specifically in Wollongbar, including at the Plateau Drive site.  

The concept plans were endorsed by Council in 2019. Download the draft concept plan (pdf)
