Blurring the lines between the passive and the extreme at Sydney Park.

Our Landscape Architecture team designed this new skate facility in Sydney Park in collaboration with Convic. It accommodates different skill levels for everyday use and includes a traditional park skate area, a lineal plaza, and a beginner’s bowl for street and bowl-style wheeled action sports. The skate facility has been added to the park to contribute to an active recreation loop and is adjacent to the new ‘learn to ride’ bike facility. The location also uses the park's landform to create an informal amphitheatre for spectator viewing.

The Skate Park facility incorporates two key areas, accommodating space for both amateur and professional level skills. An extensive plaza in one section has obstacles for street-style technical tricks and a beginner’s bowl for street and bowl-style wheeled action sports. Adjacent, an international-scale flow bowl with up to 3.3m depth provides the more challenging part of the facility and is designed to the level of Olympic-standard competition bowls.

Multiple viewing areas, seats, and trees scattered throughout the skate park invite visitors to spend time there. New picnic areas and barbecues have been installed, and a final piece of the Park Circuit Path now connects the entire Park. Through these initiatives, the Skate Park has successfully attracted a wide range of new users.
