When you’re out for a day on the town, you might be tempted to head out for some free skateboarding or ice skating, but the free skate park at the CBD’s West End has been running for more than 10 years and is popular with locals and tourists alike.
It’s a great place to try out your skills on the streets of Sydney, but there’s one thing that sets it apart from other skate parks around the world: the free and unsupervised skate park.
When you’re free, the park is open to all but those with medical conditions, who can use the public rink for personal training.
“Our aim is to create an environment that is safe for all of our patrons, but also provides a safe space to be themselves, so they can work, enjoy the park, and explore their surroundings,” a spokesperson for the West End skate park told Business Insider.
Skate park in Melbourne “We’re happy to be able to do this with our park, so it’s just an extra bonus.
They can work out and have a good time with their mates, get some free training, and also enjoy the free skates at the skate park.”
You can access the park at 12:00pm daily and it has a dedicated public rink.
For people with health issues, the skate rink is open until 3:00am and there is no restriction on skateboarding.
There are no specific skateboard rules to follow, and the skateboard can be used as long as it is a single-person board.
