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

The new Skate Park facility establishes a dynamic regional recreation facility within Sydney Park. The facility has been sited to contribute to an active recreation loop and is located adjacent to the new Kid’s Bike Track. This position takes good advantage of the park landform to create an informal amphitheatre for spectator viewing.

Client: City of Sydney

  • Two key areas:

  • 2) The international scale flow bowl
The Team:

The Skate Park facility incorporates two key areas, accommodating space for both amateur and professional level skill. In one section, an extensive plaza has been built with 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 which is up to 3.3m depth, provides the more challenging part of the facility and is designed to the level of Olympic-standard competition bowls.

Scattered throughout the Skate Park are multiple viewing areas, seats and trees, inviting visitors to spend time within the space. 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 been successful in attracting a wide range of new users.
