Sydney’s Best Skateparks
Whether you prefer beach, bush, park or city rides – Sydney skate parks have got it all on offer.
Bondi Beach Skatepark
Skate with a view! Bondi is worth a visit all by itself – but bring your boards and scooters too – this has to be one of the most scenic rides in the world. Located at 109 Campbell Parade on Bondi Beach – it can get very busy. But bring your swimmers and enjoy the sand and surf while you’re there too. Just up the road next to the Bondi Pavillion you can also find a fab waterfront fully fenced playground too. Here you can find a map of Bondi’s parks, including the skate park.
Monster Skatepark – Sydney Olympic Park
The Sydney Olympic Park is an incredible place for families in general – the Monster Skate Park is just one of many awesome things to do with kids there.
There are indoor and outdoor areas with sections for all ages and abilities.
The park is currently closed due to fire damage (March 2018) but keep an eye on their website for the re-opening date.
Located in Sturt Park near Evans Road in Parramatta this park is great for all ages. Set in a lush green park it’s good for little ones too as there is a play park nearby. You can walk there easily from Telopea train station or there’s loads of parking. As well as being home to one of Sydney’s best skate parks, it’s worth spending a day in Parramatta with the family. There are loads of lovely open and green spaces, playparks and even a water play park for hot days.
Five Dock Skatepark
One of the oldest and best skate parks in the country . There are 3 bowls, a snake run and a half pipe. The areas around the outside of the park are aimed at beginners and younger kids, and it’s set in green parklands with loads of open areas to relax in. Head over to their website for more info.
Closer to the city you can find Fernside Skate Park – located on Elizabeth St & McEvoy St in Waterloo. It’s not too far from Centennial Park where there are loads of family things to do – including the Ian Potter Wild Play area which we loved!
It’s named as on of Sydney’s best skate parks as it was designed by local skaters and has so much on offer.
North Sydney Skate Plaza
If you’re on the north side then check out the North Sydney Skate Plaza – (also known as Cammeray skate park) located at 315 Ernest Street in Cammeray. Street stlye skating in the shade of trees – with BBQs and sports fields next door.
Also on the north side – Manly Skate Park on Pittwater Road – this one is a little older but it’s on our list of Sydney’s best skate parks as we love the northern beaches! Any excuse to go to Manly and we’ll take it. Don’t miss a chance while you’re here to hit the beach too.
Summer Hill Skatepark
There is a large skate park located at Summer Hill – on Carlton Crescent in the Darrell Jackson Gardens about 10kms from the city. There are also 2 playparks here – one for younger kids and fully fenced – so there’s something to entertain all ages.
Dulwich Hill Skatepark
Great skate park located on Hercules Street in Dulwich Hill in Sydney’s inner west. Great for young kids as well as more experienced riders – there is also a BBQ area, and lots of grassy areas and shade.
Korrupt Indoor Skate
If it’s raining or mid-winter you might want to check out Korrupt Indoor Skate Park in Campbelltown. If you’re on holiday without all your gear you can even hire scooters and helmets. They even offer lessons if you want to improve your ollie!
