Skating in Sydney is not necessarily the easiest thing to do. Pedestrians, cars and disgruntled rent-a-cops can get in the way of a shred session. All of this can be avoided of course if you utilise one of the city’s finest skate parks. The 7 Best Skateparks in Sydney have been selected based on reviews from fellow skaters who have spent many good times shredding at these skate parks and we hope you approve.
If you’re a fan of indoor facilities where no expense was spared, we have that for you. If you’re more of a traditionalist and want a bare-bones concrete council run option, then we have that as well. Mainly, we want everyone to get out and have a skate at some of the best skate parks in and around the city.
North Sydney Skate Plaza
We begin our list with one of the most highly regarded and loved skate parks in the city. The North Sydney Skate Plaza. A great little park that has everything you could want when it comes to a street park. The main focus of this park is for beginners to come and hone their skills on the various rails and banks. One thing to take into consideration is that the parks have no lights. A fun little course and one that has been a great addition to the wider Sydney skating community.

Bondi Skate Park
This list can’t go any further without mentioning the world-renowned Bondi Skate Park. It has become a place to visit for any self-respecting skater who is visiting Sydney or call this city home. Featuring concrete coping and a really tight corner, what is regarded as one of the best vert bowls in the country would be challenging for any skater. This isn’t necessarily a traditional street skate park, but it is still one that can be heaps of fun. Word to the wise though, similarly to the famous beach nearby it can get quite busy.

Five Dock Skate Park
For those of you are interested in skating on some gnarly concrete bowls than you should definitely consider a visit to the Five Dock Skate Park. Featuring both new, (a 5 and 8 foot bowl has been added as well as spine, love seat, pool coping and lines for days) and old elements, (The legendary Snake Run has recently been revamped and improved) of the park as well alongside a street course it has definitely earned it is a place in the hearts of the Sydney skating community.
68 Ingham Avenue, Five Dock, Sydney NSW 2046
Now, we have given a lot of love to the vert variety of skate parks on this list. It’s time to give some attention to the street parks. The Waterloo Skatepark has an abundance of elements that a good skatepark needs to have. In no discernible order, the park contains blocks, ledges, manual pads, banks, stairs, rails, a flat bar, a mini-ramp and for those of you nuts a steep wall. If all this is a touch overwhelming then don’t fret, the park has ample space where skaters who are still in the early stages of riding can improve and practice the fundamentals.

Macquarie Fields Skate Park
What the Macquarie Fields Skate Park lacks in colour it makes up for in some decent banks and humps. If that wasn’t enough the street section of the park is large and very smooth, meaning you can enjoy the ride with plenty of personal space. But perhaps the piece de resistance, the bowl is so deep it contains ladders that are used both for climbing out of and for grinding down, of course, we encourage to skate within your ability but there’s always that new challenge.

Korrupt Indoor Skatepark
Now, what if it’s raining but you’ve got to get a skate in? Well, you visit the Korrupt Indoor Skatepark in Campbelltown that’s what! With a street section, mini half pipe, foam pit, resi box and a quarter plus an adjoining shop, this facility provides a place where skaters of varying skill levels a place to enjoy away from the elements.

Monster Skatepark at Sydney Olympic Park
