A solar bench that can charge up to 10 phones at once is here to stay at Modbury Skate Plaza next to Waterworld.

Following a successful free six-month trail of the bench, Council decided to invest $7,500 to buy it.

The skate park is considered an ideal site for the bench due to the number of people who use the site over extended periods.

The solar bench has eight USB outlets and two Qi wireless chargers.

Free public wi-fi is available at the skate park and Waterworld. 

The Civic Centre, Tea Tree Gully Library, Civic Park, Golden Fields Reserve, Golden Grove Recreation and Arts Centre and Turramurra Recreation Centre also offer free public wi-fi.
