City Skate is a unique destination facility, designed in close collaboration with Adelaide's skate community and those that held the old City Skatepark close to their hearts.

Located next to West Terrace and nestled in the Adelaide Park Lands, City Skate is a facility built for skating, BMX and other wheeled sports from levels beginner to advanced.

City Skate is the largest skate park in South Australia and will be home to local events, skate clinics and some of Australia's major skating events.

We really enjoyed working with the community from the old City Park to develop what we feel is a completely different style modern facility. The materials, obstacles and integrated landscape approach will make this space feel different than any other skatepark across Australia. We can’t wait to see what tricks go down in this space! – CONVIC design team
