Gwynne Park Skate Park is an exciting new youth facility in the City of Armadale which has recently opened to the public on Thursday, 18 November. The redevelopment of the park was informed through extensive community consultation and local skate enthusiasts and young people. Ideas from this consultation was integrated into the skate park design.

The skate park offers riders of varying skill levels a range of elements, including a A-frame with rail, flat rail, combo ledge/manual pad, quarter pipe with alternate starting points, long quarter pipe with bank extension, a variety of ledges, stair set with down/across rails, horseshoe bowl and more. The facility also provides a parkour course, picnic area including a barbeque and public toilet block.

There was a community launch on the open day of the Gwynne Park Skate Park for beginner, intermediate and advanced skaters. Participating skaters gave great feedback on the park and enjoyed an afternoon with The Skateboarding Program learning and practising new tricks. Approximately 30-40 young people attended the community launch.

The skate park creates a new space for young people in the City of Armadale and also supports young people to try a new skill and use skateboarding as a form of transport.

The Skateboarding Program has uploaded a video of the community launch day which can be found on their Facebook page here:

Great launch Kirsten! Looking at your photos and the video on facebook - it is clear to me that these kind of facilities do wonders for kids motivation to be riding, scooting and skating. You have earned 40 points for your launch plus 10 points for sharing all the details.
