The new Adelaide City skatepark provides a standout destination facility capable of holding international competitions and events, putting Adelaide on the map for extreme sports while catering for skill progression and a community events. With a design that is sympathetic to its green parkland setting, its central location elevates skate and youth culture within the city and broader SA region.
Paying homage to the old city skatepark, community consultation and stakeholder input helped develop a space that celebrates and recreates a contemporary version of the much-loved old city skatepark.
The combination of unconventional unique obstacles and quirky sculptural layout provides a space that is different from anything Australia has seen before. The design works as one large flowing skatepark or individual skate areas that cascade down the sloped site, while the varying materials create a plaza space that reflects the rich layers of the Cities urban fabric.
