Shayla Dame Skatepark

Formerly known as Round Rock Skatepark, this is an impressive spot that’s part of a well equipped community centre. The skatepark takes up quite a large area and features and sprawling street course and a large bowl.

The street course is an end-to-end setup starting with a series of 4-5ft banks and transitions that lead to a bunch of obstacles including stairs, rails, hubba’s and boxes. At the far end the street section rounds out with a few more banks and transitions as well as a little pyramid hip and and a 3-4ft transition. Scattered throughout there is a few interesting bits and pieces like a rough-as-guts 3ft trannie with chunky pool style edging. The layout is awesome and you can get solid lines from one and to the other and back, a lot of fun.

The bowl is a bit of a monster and has three areas. Firstly the smaller end gets to around 6ft and has various entries, transitions and extensions. The central section is just a couple of extensions one that’s a full circle thing and the other an over vert pool edged transition. Rounding it off is the larger pool end which is around 10ft and wondrously wide with a smooth transition. The simplicity of the big end makes it beautiful to skate.

A solid skatepark with a well thought out design and great for skaters of all skill levels. The only gripe would be the quality of the edging and coping thats a bit rough and chunky in parts…. but all part of the fun.

The park also features a great shaded area where you can watch all the action from (and take a break from the summer heat). The surrounding parkland is all very lovely and there’s a few other sporting facilities around (basketball, tennis). Plenty of free parking nearby. Check out the official site for more details.

This skatepark looks heaps smooth but its actually really rough. Im sure you could have some fun at this skatepark but for the money its not worth it. I thought that the bowl looked awesome but you didn’t get enough speed to get to the lip. There was some clever things here such as the rollin and the bumps in the middle. I think young skaters could have a bit of fun here, but its better for scooters here its to rough to skate. Over all this park is ok but not worth going to for the money. Your better off going to Fillmore skatepark which is sick and only like 25 minutes from here.
