Our Favourite Skate Parks
There's a lot to love about the Tassie skating scene.
From the classic old favourites, to the new parks popping up all over the state. More and more, the local Governments are investing funds into new facilities. We encourage you to partition your local Council for a commitment to build the next local park.
These are some of our all time local favourites.
West Hobart Bowl
John Dogget Park, West Hobart
This is the second oldest skatepark in the Southern Hemishphere, long snake run into a big old bowl. Pro Skater Bob Burnquist rates it in his top 5 parks and it's had everyone from Alva to Tony Trujillo skate the place. It's old, its rough, its heaven!
EC Skate Park
North Hobart Cultural Park
An absolute Tassie Icon, with a bit of every thing and still pretty good for its age. This place has seen a lot of action and competitions over the years.
Tolosa Street, Glenorchy
Plaza style, built well and very fun (full of kids on the weekends due to the being in a reserve with bbq areas, etc). So if wanting to avoid the crowds then weekdays or late nights in the summer are best.
Channel Highway, Kettering
A good bowl, street section is all a little tight but if down that way worth a check. If you're heading to Bruny, as it's worth stopping at as its just before the ferry.
School Road, Alonnah
In an amazing spot, this park has a nice bowl with a pool coping and some street obstacles around the outside. Be sure to head over to the pub for some amazing seafood and a beer, with a stunning view.
