Switch Skatepark (Closed)

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.

This park is heaps of fun but quite damaged with its coping and wood.Its got some really fun things like the mini but my favorite thing is the spine because even though i couldn’t land it was still fun to get speed and bail. I reckon kids my age should skate or scoot here it really matters what level your up to but skating is probably better because the mini is great for learning lip tricks.

We skated this on:

Australia, Mid North Coast, New South Wales, Skateparks
