Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has installed anti-vandalism devices on seating in and around the Town Square.
The eight seating pods and the devices cost a total of $16,000.
The work was funded through the Town Centre Master Plan committee.
Council's group manager Liam Bulley said the installations should deter future instances of vandalism.
“Council has recently installed seating pods in the Town Square to ensure a variety of seating options are available for our community to enjoy in the space," Mr Bulley said.
"Council is aware of vandalism to this furniture as a result of skateboard activity, and will be adjusting deterrents that have been installed on the seats to better discourage their use as skating obstacles in the future.
"Council encourages anyone who witnesses incidents of vandalism to any of our public facilities across the region to please report it to the police.”

The deterrents have been placed on eight of the relocatable eating pods.
The Town Centre Master Plan was developed to transform the town centre of Port Macquarie.
Since 1992, the Master Plan has provided a guide to improve the CBD, attract local and non-local visitors, allow for economic opportunities and encourage growth within the Town Centre.
Over the past 20 years, council has embarked on an extensive process seeking community input around the Town Centre Master Plan.
Funding for improvement and upgrade works in the Port Macquarie CBD, including the Town Square, is predominantly sourced from a special tax levied on the property owners of the CBD.
This is called the ‘Town Centre Master Plan Reserve Fund’ and is administered by the Town Centre Master Plan sub-committee (TCMP) made up representatives from the community, CBD landholders, Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce, CBD traders and council staff.
