This is the skatepark where it all started – @sammycoffey and I would head over to Annandale most weekends to watch older dudes skateboarding and occasionally Sam would climb on and have a go. Eventually he started dropping in, doing kick turns and even Rock-to-fakies. It seems so long ago now…
Annandale is a small suburban skatepark that is especially suited to younger skaters or beginner scooterers. It is basically a collection of pre-fabricated quarter pipes arranged to make a couple of smaller mini’s. Its a perfect place to learn to drop in on either of the 3 or 4 foot quarter pipes. The coping is also very forgiving so its perfect for some of the basics (fakie-rocks, rock-to-fakie’s). There is also a 1.5ft fun box so even the youngest dudes can have a go.
The skatepark is part of larger park area that features a full size basketball court which is heavily used by skaters to practice moves before taking them to the ramps.
There’s some free parking, a bubbler, kids playground and plenty of green parkland but no other amenities. Also a quick walk in almost any direction will find you something to eat.
