Skate Park

The skate park at Oaklands Recreation Plaza is popular with people of all age groups.

The funky seating pods are ideal to socialise between your stunts and are equipped with power points to charge your mobile device.

There's a number of skate challenges incorporated into the design:
- Quarter pipes
- Flat banks
- Rollover hip
- Volcanoe
- Rail beams
- Grind rails
- Straight/curved ledges

This is a popular skate park, however the design offers many different challenges and spaces and means that even when busy you can enjoy some time on your choice of wheels.

A number of different organisations host events at the site to encourage people to improve their skate skills and connect with their community.  You can stay informed through our City of Marion Youth Development Facebook page.

Parkour

There are some parkour bars adjacent to the skate park... give it a go!
