    Project Background and Information

    In 2018, Council commenced further research and a Skate Site Scoping Study to identify the most suitable location for a new integrated skate, BMX and youth recreation facility. This was undertaken with consideration to previous consultation results (viewed here.) which identified the riverbank precinct, Gladys Elphick Park / Narnungga (Park 25) as well as any other possible locations in conjunction with key stakeholders and industry representatives. Council is continuing discussions with the State Government regarding the funding and location of a new permanent skate facility in the city.

  • Project Update: 20 October 2015

    over 3 years ago

    In the absence of a permanent skate facility and the identification of a suitable location yet to be made, a Temporary Skate and Court upgrade will be constructed in Ityamai-itpina (Park 15) off Wakefield Road. This facility will be constructed within the footprint of the existing basketball courts, and the extent of works will include a skate section, upgraded basketball facilities and community recreation facilities. The project is currently open for tender and the successful tender submission is scheduled to be confirmed in November 2015.

    Council is continuing discussions with the State Government regarding the funding and location of a new permanent skate facility in the city. The development of this temporary skate and court upgrade will provide a significant opportunity to engage with the skate community on the design, implementation and management of a new permanent solution specifically.

  • Project Update: August 2014

    almost 5 years ago
    The City Skate Park will temporarily close from 11th of August until 8th September 2014.

    The closure will enable site testing and survey to occur ahead of building and construction works expected to commence in 2015. City Skate Park will reopen on completion of the site survey and testing, and remain open until February 2015 when Adelaide City Council’s lease expires.

    Adelaide City Council continues to work closely with the State Government to confirm a suitable location for the new skate park.

    During this time, you can continue skating at one of the nearby Skate Parks. See below for a list of Skate Parks within 10km of the City:
