Skate and BMX Park

 

The Young Skate 'n' BMX Park was designed by and for skaters and riders. The park was designed by Convic, global leaders in skate park solutions, with input from local skaters and riders. It has a great flow which works well for all skill levels and it is in a prime location with public toilets and drinking water nearby.

 The Park is suitable for Skateboards, BMX's, Scooters, Blades and everything in between having great coping and a smooth surface. Features include a spine & camel hump, a pocket, a vert wall, a manual pad, grind boxes, rails, quarter pipe and roll-in ramps & a unique (but fun) obstacle that has become known as the 'Kosciuszko'.

“This is honestly one of the most skate-able, fluid parks I've ever skated as it doesn't take long to ease into before you can spot some great potential runs to try out”. - Will Dodge

General Skate Park Etiquette

Wait Your Turn
In a crowded skate park, taking turns at having a run is important. Don’t cut in front of someone who has been waiting ages to go. When it’s your turn to skate watch what other skaters are doing and make sure that your turn is around the same length as theirs.

Watch Out For Others
In most busy parks, skaters will naturally tend to skate in a certain direction around the facility. Cutting across someone's path can cause problems for other park users. Be patient, wait your turn, watch out for each other. New skaters may not be aware of this rule, so if you see someone continuously doing this, help them out by explaining nicely the general rule. If they are young maybe demonstrate the right way.

Children
Keep children under active supervision at all times in or around skate parks.

Be Respectful of Other Uses
Most of the time parks are used by people riding skateboards, BMX bikes and scooters. Be respectful of each other. If someone on a BMX is using a bit of the park you would like to use, just ask them if you can have a go for a while. Remember if you are nice to them they are more likely to be nice to you.

If You Get Hurt
If you fall and aren’t hurt get straight back up and move out of the way. If you are injured, ask for help immediately to avoid any other collisions.

Having A Break
If you’re having a break, move off of the park and out of the way.

Help Each Other
Everyone has to start somewhere. The young kids often just need someone to point out the rules. If you see someone trying to do a trick and not succeeding try not to embarrass them by doing the trick right in front of them. You can always offer to help them out, if you know what they need to change – for example if their foot positioning is wrong.

Say Sorry
If you accidently collide with someone, simply apologise. It’s easy to do.

Clean Up After Yourself
You should be proud of your local skate park, so help out to keep it clean and enjoyable for everyone.

Check It’s Safe to Skate
When you arrive check the state of the park. If there is dirt, water, glass, leaves or grass on the park your wheels are more likely to slip.

Protect Yourself
To help avoid injuries it is important to wear safety equipment, especially when trying something new or starting out.
