George Whittle Reserve

George Whittle Reserve has a unique character and offering. Being predominately a youth space, it provides infrastructure for multiple community sports such as basketball, tennis, parkour and a skate park. The design objective is to provide exemplary youth sports facilities while creating a welcoming park environment for the broader community.

Using the current popular uses to guide the programming of a new design, as well as early consultation outcomes, the revamped George Whittle design truly embraces its youth community and creates a destination for skaters, community basketball, families, and youth play. JPE Design Studio collaborated with a local skate artist to develop more bespoke, industrial/urban elements for the reserve.
