This skatepark is essentially two skateparks joined together. The older section is a couple of pre-fab 4-5 foot roll-in banks on one side, a section of 4.5 foot quarters with two small hips on the other side and a weird small hump in the middle. The new section is a gnarly kidney shaped bowl that goes from a 6 foot shallow end to a solid 8 foot vert deep end. Joining the two is a rad staircase (8 stairs) with a handrail, grind box and euro-gap roll-in that lead to an open area that has a couple of basic grind boxes.
The pre-fab park is very basic and limits what you can do here. It’s another one of those parks that has two facing banks of quarters and a flat section that is too long to maintain speed and too short do anything else with… perfect for scooters I guess. Which would explain why there a so many of them here.
The bowl is great for hardcore skaters but be warned it’s heavily used by the local BMX’rs. Also take a broom as it usually has some leaves and debris in the deep end. The cement is very smooth and fast, and the coping is medium sized and sits nicely.
Probably the most fun for the average skater is the staircase/grind-box part that joins the two main sections. For the hardcore there’s an awesome handrail and grind-box that runs the full 8 stairs. For the younger skaters there’s a nice little euro-gap to roll-in that leads into the smaller grind-boxes on the flat. At the very least you can practice some simple grinds on the smaller grind-boxes.
It’s located at the edge of Robin Thomas Reserve, a green leafy park with plenty of shade and seating around the main skate area. No specific carpark but some street parking is available nearby and a shopping centre carpark is nearby. A quick walk in most directions would get you food as it’s not far from the main shopping area of Parramatta. We couldn’t find any toilets directly in the park.
