Syd­ney Park Skate Space

What is it: A new grinders’ play­ground When will it open? Mid-2019

Time Out (Sydney) - - FUTURE SYDNEY -

City of Syd­ney tells us there are 56,000 skate­board­ers liv­ing within a 20 kilo­me­tre ra­dius of St Peters. That sounds like a lot – so per­haps it’s no sur­prise that one of the big projects on the Lord Mayor’s check­list is a skate plaza within the 44 hectare park­lands. The project, which has com­pleted the pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion phase, is set to be­come the big­gest skatepark in Syd­ney. De­mand for more skate, scooter and BMX spaces was so high that the coun­cil is work­ing to bring a 1-3m-deep flow bowl to the park as a mat­ter of kick-flip­pin’ ur­gency. The plans in­clude build­ing three key zones: the Tra­di­tional Park, which will have con­tin­u­ous runs for all skill lev­els; the Lineal Plaza Run that’ll fo­cus on low level ob­sta­cles; and the Be­gin­ners Bowl – that’ll do ex­actly what it says on the tin. The Skate Space will sit next to the ex­ist­ing chil­dren’s cy­cle track. If it’s ap­proved, we’ll have to wait two years be­fore it’s ready to roll.
