Action lovers will be happy to hear about this. Sydney Park is gearing up for an upgrade which will see the bike track area transform into a skate park for scooters, skateboards and BMX bikes.

The current bike track which runs along Sydney Park Road, will be replaced by bowl and street style skate opportunities, according to the City of Sydney. It will supposedly cater to small children, all the way up to experienced adults. So far, the plan includes:

  • spaces for skating and scootering

  • gathering spaces

  • improved access and circulation paths

  • lighting

  • more shade and tree planting

A beginner’s bowl is in the works, with talk of a flow bowl to follow after the development, suitable for more advanced skaters and a possible venue for future skate competitions.

The kids park is a fantastic facility. The skate park is a very worthy addition but why cant it be put in a other space instead of ruining whats already there. Is westconnex influencing this?
