Damage to public art

05 Feb 2015

Skateboarders have significantly damaged a $3 million public artwork in Docklands.

Monument Park at NewQuay was officially opened just two months ago and is already showing wear and tear. Skateboarders have frequently been seen skating on the sculptures that comprise the large-scale artwork.

The artwork was commissioned by MAB Corporation and general manager of residential David Allt-Graham said the company was aware and disappointed by the damage caused by skateboarders at Monument Park.

“Skateboarders are welcome in NewQuay, but we ask that they show respect to the artist and the local community by refraining from skating on the actual monuments and damaging public property,” Mr Allt-Graham said.

“MAB will be undertaking some remedial work to remove or at least significantly reduce the incidence of skating on the monuments.”

“We encourage the members of the community to contact the local police if they see skateboarders causing damage to the park by skating on the monuments.”
