SKATE-PARKS-HEADER

Do you have an aspiring Skateboarder?  Or maybe you have younger kids who like to take their scooter for a spin on an easier skate park?  We’ve put together a list of the best Skate Parks in our beautiful South West!

You can see exactly what they’re like before you choose the best ones for your kids based on their age and skill levels (and their proximity to coffee).  It’s ok Mummas, we’ve done all the hard work for you!  Enjoy exploring our beautiful region with your kids.

Collie Skate Park

If you haven’t check out Collie Skate Park yet, you must!  What a beautiful space for children of all ages!  Situated next to Soldiers Park (which is a fantastic playground) there are toilets accessible from both facilities and plenty of parking.

The 730m2 facility both amplifies and adds further value to the Collie River Precinct whilst creating a central social and recreational hub for the community. The design of the skate park incorporates a tight bowl, a number of transition elements and the inclusion of several technical street features; a stand out being a kicker to kicker gap over the dry creek bed.

Location – 10 Lefroy Street Collie
Toilets – YES!

Bunbury Skate Park

Located opposite Centrepoint Shopping Centre in Queens Gardens, Bunbury Skate Park offers a variety of street features, banks, quarters and bowls.

It’s totally suited to younger kids on scooters, as well as experienced skaters and everyone in between.

There is a little water behind this skate park with some little duckies swimming around (only mentioning this in case you have a younger toddler where you need to be aware of unfenced water).

The bonus for this one is close proximity to coffee!  Yes Mummas, we’ve got your back!

Parking for Bunbury Skate Park is in the Queens Gardens Carpark.  There is also a playground accessible from the same carpark – you’ll find it here.

Location – Queens Park Gardens (opposite Centrepoint Shopping Centre) vehicle access from Cobblestone Drive.
Toilets – no

Dunsborough Skate Park

This relatively new skate park is a must visit.  It’s set alongside the Dunsborough Playing Fields.  It features quite a deep bowl and plenty of banks and quarters.  It caters for all levels of skating expertise.

Plenty of seating available around the park, easy parking and toilets close by (yes Mums, this one is a winner!).  I was also able to navigate the pram around the park really easily.

Another plus for Dunsborough is it’s close proximity to two parks (one is fenced) and a large oval.  You can find more info on the parks at Dunsborough Playing Fields here.

Location – Beside Dunsborough Playing Fields
Toilets – yes

Busselton Skate Park

Situated on Busselton’s historic foreshore, the Busselton Skate Park is sure to impress!  This awesome park features two bowls and four interconnected street areas, providing a range of difficultly and challenges for both novice and experienced skaters (or scooters) alike.

While we were reviewing the park, we saw younger children using bikes and scooters, older experienced skaters – even a Dad learning to skate alongside his bike riding toddler.  So it definitely caters for all levels.

Busselton Skate Park is proudly home to WA’s deepest bowl at 3m deep.

The skate park features plenty of seating areas for spectators, easy parking and lockers.  We loved that there were historic features from the old Busselton Jetty sewn into the overall design, as well as landscaped areas to break up the vast concrete.

Location – On the Busselton Foreshore near the Busselton Jetty.
Toilets – not at the actual park, closest would be at the park further down the foreshore.

Donnybrook Skate Park

Located close to the town centre in Egan Park (right opposite the Apple Fun Park), Donnybrook Skate Park was built in 2014 and offers a great experience for both experienced and novice skaters.  With plenty of seating for spectators, this smooth concrete skate park is definitely one worth a visit.

This compact park is definitely suitable for a younger child with a scooter, but also for older skaters or scooters too.  It can get a little overcrowded on weekends, so little ones can get a little overwhelmed.

Location – Egan Park opposite the Apple Fun Park
Toilets – no, closest would be inside the Apple Fun Park.

Cowaramup Skate Park

Yes!  There is a really cool skate park in Cowaramup!  It’s fairly small, however, it is definitely a little gem!  It is suitable for younger and older kids and combines a range of challenges and levels in one compact park.

The skatepark features a decent bowl, ledges around the outside and a little quarter!

Cowaramup Skate Park is suitable for little ones on a scooter, as well as older experienced skaters.

A little bonus with this park if you have younger kids, is that it is right next to a great little playground.  It has picnic table, bbqs and plenty of lawn too.  Really easy parking.  And clean toilets (winning!).

Location – Behind the tennis courts on Bussell Highway, Cowaramup.
Toilets – yes!  Located close to the skate park next to the playground.

Other Skate Parks

We know there are other skate parks in the region, but after visiting them all, this is our pick of the best ones.  Some of the skate parks we have left out of this list have prefabricated ramps placed onto a concrete or bitchumen surface, whereas we have concentrated on concrete skate parks as we find they are more popular with scooters and skaters alike.

Think we’ve missed a cracker skate park that you feel should have made the list?  Make sure you let us know here.
