Also known as the Rod Maguire Community Skatepark, this park only utilises a small space but it is jam packed with pre-fab goodness. Of all the pre-fab setups we’ve seen, this is probably one of the best. At each end it features a bank of 4-5ft transitions – some with coping, some just roll-ins. In between is a 2ft transitioned funbox that has a good elevated grind-box and a cracking hand-rail (about 7ft long).
What makes this park work is the fact that its a bit smaller in surface area, the flat between each of the 3 sections is shorter and the flow feels more like a couple of mini-ramps then a bunch of quarters. The central funbox is also more interesting than the usual pre-fab options. All together an entertaining and fun little skatepark.
Sadly the day we visited it was too wet to have a decent go here, but we’ll be back! Free parking and parkland and beach nearby, but proper amenities and food are a short walk/drive back up the main street.
Taree Skatepark is a collection of pe-fab quarters, banks and boxes loosely arranged at the edge of Taree Park. The quarters come in all the usual shapes and sizes (4-5ft, some with coping, some roll-ins) while the banks are really just moulded cement mounds. The central funbox is bigger than usual here (similar to Harrington) and has a elevated rail/grind bar. The final piece in the puzzle is two 3ft quarters joined to form a spine.
The arrangement is a bit odd and hasn’t been that well thought out, but you can still string a few tricks together – especially from the larger roll-in onto the funbox. The surface is in reasonable condition, a bit rough in parts. The coping is all OK looks like it gets BMX use.
Plenty of parking around, and a quick walk in any direction and you’ll find food and amenities.
Located right near Harrington Beach in this quaint little holiday village sits a small pre-fab skatepark. Fairly basic in design it features a 6ft roll-in that leads to a large central funbox (with angled rails and grind boxes). At the far end there’s a 4.5ft corner transition with some very small coping. That’s about it.
The overall surface is ok, a little rough in parts but usable. However there is a lot of sand and dirt which does make it all a bit slippery. Looks like its well used by the local BMX’rs and scooter kids.
Ample free parking and amenities around. Nice beach nearby and apparently good fishing spot if that rocks your boat.
Old fashioned pre-fab on the edge of town. Features a 3ft quarter with the most horrific coping we’ve seen, a 3ft curved bank, a central banked triangle thing and a couple of manual/grind boxes. The surface is terrible and the overall design is very basic. Looks like it was built in the early 90’s and is well overdue for an upgrade. You can always head 20mins up the road to the amazing Town Beach Skatepark in Port Macquarie
I’m sure it gives the locals something to do, but not worth the effort for anyone else. Free parking, service station and amenities all nearby.
So far on this journey we’ve hit almost 70 skateparks, some good, some even great but a lot of them very average… but today we were lucky enough to find one of the best! Town Beach Skatepark is just pure awesomeness.
Built and designed by Convic it spans a large park area just on the break-wall near Town Beach in Port Macquarie. It is typically beautifully well thought out and the attention to detail is everything you expect from a Convic design.
To detail every intricate part of this skateboarding wonderland would be pointless so I’ll just point out a few of the highlights. The main feature is the split level bowl that goes from a silky smooth 4ft shallow end all the way up to 7ft in the deep. It’s simply stunning and so versatile, perfect as s mini, a carving bowl or even for big airs and exits.
Then there is the smaller 4ft mini/bank half-pipe that’s as unique as it is fun. Great little transitions and fantastic for all the lip smacking fun you can think of. Finally, the surface – you have to ride it to understand, Convic have created something magical here. We’ve been to many other Convic Skateparks, but the cement here is highly evolved!
The rest of the park is a series of banks, ledges, boxes, rails, stairs and transitions all perfectly positioned. No edge is left is left untouched, I mean why wouldn’t you you add some coping or a steel edge to everything!
Obviously a skatepark of such awesomeness is gonna be busy, and yeah there’s heaps of scooters kids and BMX’rs. But there’s heaps of skaters too and the space is big enough and so well designed that it all just works. Plenty of free parking and amenities around and of course there’s a beach next door. 5 big stars!
Another sleepy little holiday village on the NSW mid north coast. It has a recently (2011) updated skatepark that’s fairly basic but offers at least something for the locals and summer holiday kids to have a jam on.
The older part of the skatepark features a retro bowl about 3ft deep that opens at one end to a 2ft bank. The surface is rough and chunky and there is no coping. There’s also a 4.5ft quarter and a fun little 2ft bank with a grind box. You can easily tell the old parts of this skatepark due to the poor quality surface.
The newer parts are all scattered around the edges of skatepark. They include a 4ft hight, 12ft wide transition with a slight corner. A couple of 5ft banks and a few other transitions and wedges. The combination of the old and new sections dont really work together, there are no lines to speak of, the transitions are inconsistent and the varying surfaces all combine to make it all a bit disappointing. There is still fun to be had here, but its just not as good as it could be.
Plenty of free parking available and a service station just across the road has food and amenities. There is also a good kids playground beside the skatepark and just down the hill is beautiful beach.
Located on the outskirts of Port Macquarie is this purpose built indoor skatepark. Filling a mid sized warehouse is a collection of transitions, minis, obstacles and banks of all different shapes and sizes.
The banks range from 3-6ft and there’s also a massive 9 footer that is mostly for the BMX’rs. The quarters are scattered throughout and mostly sit around 3-4ft some with coping others are just launch ramps. There are three minis, two of them are 3ft but fairly narrow, the main one is 5ft high, 25ft wide and has a couple of extensions including a vert section. The rest of the park is made up of boxes, angled banks, grand a small interchangeable street section.
Switch Skatepark has a lot of potential, but sadly the plywood surfaces haven’t been well maintained (especially the main mini ramp). There’s many uneven patches and the occasional nail sticking up. The coping is buried, crooked and generally in bad shape.
Despite all of this however a great session can be had, especially when it’s wet! It looks reasonably well used, mostly by local BMX’rs and scooter kids.
Plenty of free parking, well stocked canteen (hot food, drinks etc), amenities and even a chill out lounge.
Stock standard pre-fab skatepark right on the beach front at Crescent Heads. It features a simple 4ft bank/roll-in on one end, a pair of joined 4ft quarters at the other. In between is a basic 1.5ft hump, let’s just call it a speed hump. The surface is fairly rough but we’ve seen plenty worse. The coping is tiny but functional.
So nothing amazing here it’s just something entertain the surfers, campers and holiday kids when they’re not down at the beach. Harmless.
Plenty of free parking, food, BBQ’s etc around… and you could literally pop an ollie from the ramp into the surf.
Review coming soon, in the meantime here are our photos.

Nambucca Heads has itself a truly amazing skatepark, one of the best on the Mid North Coast. Wonderfully designed in every way and just a delight to skate.
It features essentially two open 5ft bowls that are joined by a spine, both have extensions reaching about 6ft. The transitions are perfect and the surface ridiculously fast and smooth.
The open end of each of the bowls forms a little plaza section. It features a 4ft bank with a handrail and hubba, a scattering of ledges and a cracking little 2ft transitioned corner. jan 5, 2009 – there i was treated from bipolar disorders – accepted prozac. it very well … somebody can prompt, where it is possible to buy retin-a without prescription, it had to happen. facepaint, purchase retin-a online. buy prozac online?
So Macksville has a skatepark, its true, we found it and skated it, even documented it. This is that skatepark… as you can see there’s not much to it. At one end sits a 5ft half bowl ‘featuring’ two roll-ins but no coping. At the other a set of 3-4ft banks, one of them ‘featuring’ a tiny transitioned extension. Amazing!
To be fair Macksville is just an old neglected slab of cement. It probably gets used by BMX’rs… maybe? Could be a good handball court? But there is no reason to skate here, the design is pointless and the surface is glorified gravel. Next.
Oh, free parking and Shopping Centre around the corner with food and amenities. The park itself features all kinds of activities including tennis, netball and an aquatic centre… so plenty of other things to do if you’re passing through.

Built in the mid 90’s this classic old cement skatepark is surprisingly fun. It features a range of 3-6ft banks and transitions and a large central funbox. It’s very similar to a lot of other skateparks of this era except its a bit larger and the main 6ft transition even hits vert.
As you’d expect two decades of wear and tear have left the surface feeling pretty chunky and slow. The coping also isn’t really coping so well. However you come to an old relic like Kempsey already knowing that, don’t let it hold you back. The transitions are good, the banks are fast and there’s enough here for skaters of all levels.
Plenty of free parking, hot food and nice green parkland around. Right next door is a public swimming pool with toilets and amenities. top 10 cell phone spy software review conclusion viber spy app | cell phone spy software | smartphone monitoring app …
