Skate Parks

Blue Mountains City Council has a number of skate parks established throughout the mountains. These provide a range of features for different skills. 

Katoomba Upgrades

Council is currently in the process of upgrading the skate facilities at Katoomba. This is being done with the aim of developing a facility which is more suitable for broader family use, and to improve the visitor amenity, safety and features at the current facility at Goldsmith Place. This is in response to an identified community need. 

Over the next financial year, Council will be undertaking:-

  • An upgrade to the existing skate facility at Goldsmith Place incorporating a number of improvements to the site, including additional skate features, seating and amenities. This will remain as a facility for experienced and senior skaters.
  • Developing a Junior Skate Facility at Melrose Park in North Katoomba. This facility is especially designed for children and their families.

The design plan for the upgrade at Goldsmith Place, and for the Junior Skate Facility at Melrose Park, can be downloaded from the right hand column

Locations of Skate Facilities

Glenbrook

Location:

Glenbrook Oval, Corner of Hare Street and Great Western Highway

Size:

870m2

Skaters Comments:

Glenbrook skate park is fun for bikes, skateboarding and scooters! It has a good flow with lots of fun objects!  The funbox in the middle of the park is the best because it is the  biggest in the blue mountains and it is more of an achievement to land a trick over it. Just be careful though, being a circle layout, it can be easy to cross paths with other people. Glenbrook is the biggest in the mountains and it does attract a lot of people.


Winmalee

Location:

Summerhayes Park, Adjacent to Bunnel Avenue

Size:

450m2

Skaters Comments:

Winmalee is best for street skateboarders. There are few ramps, but it has lots of rails and ledges, a feature making this park unique in the Blue Mountains skate parks. The best features are the stairs and handrail which gives skateboarders a good challenge to learn bigger and harder tricks!


Lawson
Location:

Bellevue Park, Great Western Highway

Size:

335m2

Skaters Comments:

Lawson has a good bowl and a 7ft vertical wall which is very fun to learn on! The 7 ft vert wall is the best feature of the park! It is used to pick up speed for the rest of the skatepark. The bowl and spine are well built and fit together perfectly!


Katoomba

Location:

Goldsmith Place. Near Katoomba Station

Size:

650m2

Skaters comments:

This skate park has the best half-pipe in the entire mountains, of decent size, which most people appreciate.

It has a number of ramps of different sizes which are good to learn on, and good flow lines.  Skaters have noted a need for improving.

Council Note:  An upgrade is scheduled to commence in January 2013.


Blackheath

Location:

Neate Park, Great Western Highway

Size:

225m2

Skaters comments:

Blackheath skate park is  smaller than the other skate parks, and is considered a local level beginner facility.

You will often notice a lot of kids here because it is close to the primary school and shops! The mini half-pipe and funbox are the best features!
