Wollongbar District Parkland

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 concept plans were endorsed by Council in 2019, and approvals are now in place, which means construction of the park is set to commence in 2020/2021 financial year.

The park will include:

  • public amenities and carparking
  • skate park, half-basketball-court, table tennis and multi-purpose circuit path with distance markers
  • exercise equipment
  • playground equipment
  • BBQs and park furniture
  • landscaping, shade trees and rainforest walk.

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

The project will cater to so 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.
