Update: May 2022

The City Skate Park, despite COVID tribulations, is taking shape. Here are some photos which highlight the intricacies of concreting curved structures. Great work by the contractor and to the project team in the delivery of this project!!!


More shots of the work that is currently underway.



Update: April 2022

Progress on the City Skate Park is being made...albeit slowly - see below:

Unfortunately, the spread of Covid 19 across the nation and associated quarantine requirements has led to a reduction in available resources. This has affected the head contractor onsite and key suppliers providing concrete, steel and labour resources. This has inevitably delayed the completion of works and the official opening date.

The contractor has installed the Olympic standard lighting which helps mitigate the delays by working longer hours to complete the project.

Please visit us again soon for further updates.

Update: January 2022

Works at the new City Skate Park are progressing steadily, despite some less than desirable weather conditions leading into Christmas. The civil works are now complete and a lot of footings have been poured in preparation for the skate surface. Over the next two months there will be a continuous flow of concrete occurring in conjunction with the above Olympic standard lighting being installed.’

City Skate Park: Update September 2021

The City of Adelaide has been working to deliver an exemplary skate facility in the heart of the city; however, some unavoidable technical delays have impacted on the project completion date. These unavoidable delays have allowed further testing and optimisation of the remaining works. We understand this has been disappointing, but are confident the final outcome will be worth the wait.

We have done some good work with the contractors for stage one that has allowed us to optimise the earthworks and move into stage two with Convic for the remainder of the build. Convic are a trusted skate park designer and specialist contractor. As the designer they have been working closely with us from the concept stage. Stage two construction is scheduled to begin in early October 2021.

The skate park is on track for completion in early 2022. Please refer to this page for future updates.

Hi. Just wondering what's happening with the new skatepark construction?

More trees, particularity on the north & west side, closer to the edges of the skate facilities so they do shade the skaters. Facilities for a temporary summer shade. Drinking water and toilet facilities.

As skateparks are heavily used by families often for long periods we would like to see shaded seating with BBQs/water so caregivers can offer healthier food and dont need to access the takeaway shops or negotiate the busy road (often with young children)

Just build something like http://www.skateboard.com.au/article/11-96856-1/endeavour-hills-freshcret/


It’s the city , it needs to be a large technical park that can be used for comps.

Make the other states jealous

A bowl and/or halfpipe, mini or medium size please! And shade for day and night lights would be amazing. Thanks so much for this.

would love to see a big old box jump like the big one that use to be at the old city park

We miss city park! One of the best aspects was the combination of small, technical objects to ride along with larger, more advanced ramps. It kept it interesting after many hours spent riding there. We want some big ramps please! :)

It should be a plaza-style skatepark. Being located in the CBD it ought to reflect that. There are already plenty of bowl/ramp skateparks across Adelaide but virtually no plazas. A well-designed mini ramp to the side would tick the box for transition.

What would be most valued n the Adelaide skate scene at the moment Is a purely street style based plaza. There are no parks built in this style with transition almost always being favoured. Transition is great but it would be nice to see some change.

Just replicate an existing skatepark!!! There are so many good skateparks in the world, just copy stoner plaza or some other top tier skatepark i dont get how this has not been done already
