Classic inner-city mini that oozes fun. 4ft high, 10ft wide, perfect transitions and a smooth metal surface. Bam! The only real issue is that it’s un-skatable if the sun is out and it’s more than 25 degrees – why? Because it burns baby! Also the coping is a bit rough and we recommend bringing some wax along for bonus points, otherwise perfect! This would have been my dream ramp about 20 years ago, and it’s frequented by more ‘mature’ skaters with discerning tastes… seriously awesome.
This spot has been around for many years and in 2005 the current mini replaced a similar ramp that had a ridiculous center hump. The great thing about it is that it’s nearly 100% used by skaters – rarely do you have to contend with scooters or BMX’rs. Because of that there’s always a great vibe here, older dudes encouraging younger skaters – we’ve had some great sessions. The ramp sits kind of in city suburbia right near Jubilee Park Tram Station, not a lot of food directly around but you can walk 5-10 mins to Glebe or Annandale. Free parking, near by toilets and smack bang in the middle of a delightful park. Go now!
Updated 23 April 2014 – Dulwich Hill has been recently updated with a new street section, we have already added new photos and an updated review will be up soon
Dulwich Hill Skatepark is made up of two sections. Firstly, a rather old and beaten up snake run (with weird coping) that opens to a shallow bowl with a central hump. Its essentially the domain of the BMX’s and that’s about all its good for.
The main section is much newer and the large open area is simply jam packed with quarters, bowls, banks, rails and funboxes. The sizes are varied and range from 3ft up to around 7ft and there’s ample room to carve out great lines. At the lip there’s a variety of extensions and angled coping to play with. The surface is fairly new so its fast and smooth and the coping.
There is a basketball court close by and plenty of parking. Regular competitions take place at the Skatepark but mostly for BMX’s.
Monster is one of Sydney’s best known skateparks and features what is considered to be the best vert ramp in the country. It stands at a whopping 14.5ft high and spans 68ft across and features extension on one side and mega roll-ins on the other. It’s been skated by some of the worlds best skateboarders and is regularly used for international competitions. The big vert ramp forms part of the main outdoor area of the skatepark which also a cracking 6ft spined mini that has all sorts of extras including an 8ft extension, a 10ft over-vert extension and a bank section with rails on the wide platform. The surface is thick, super fast marine-ply but can be slippery and burns a bit when you slam. The coping is massive and not for the faint at heart. Both of these ramps are incredibly well built and maintained but it’s worth noting they really are for more experienced skateboarders.
Monster also features a massive indoor street course covering 1000 square metres. Its an interchangeable setup and is always moved around to keep things interesting, and is designed to cater for all skill levels. The ramps range from 3ft slow banks and roll-ins, 7-8ft quarters all the way up to 11ft vert. For the BMX’rs there’s even a big foam pit to test out some new moves safely.
They also have weekly timetable featuring ‘skateboard only’ sessions, run workshops for all ages, school holiday camps and you can even throw a birthday party here! Check out the official site for details. The park is loaded with facilities including a canteen (with hot food), a chill-out lounge, BBQ facilities (need to pay) and a decent skateshop. There’s parking available but you need to pay.
It’s kind of like a fun-park for skateboarders… and even if you’re just starting out you can have fun just sliding down the big vert ram on your butt or pumping on the flat bottom just to get a feel for just how awesomely big the ramp is.

There’s enough here to keep most skater’s amused for a while and if you get bored of shredding you can always shoot some hoops on the brand spanking new basketball court they just added.
Not really any amenities around so make sure you pack some refreshments (but there is a funky bubbler). Plenty of parking and a grassy noll to chillax on.
Solid little suburban spot pretty small but fast and versatile and despite it’s secret dead-end street location it seems to have a decent weekend crowd. The more experienced skater can get carve out some great lines as the cement is smooth and fast. For the younger ones scooter’s seem to dominate however the open end mini-bowl is a good place for little skater dudes to get some skills or learn to drop in.
The park consists of a 4ft 3 sided mini (nice coping but quick transition), a few 4-5ft banks with various rails and extensions, a central combo box with a wedge extension & a couple of slide bar boxes.
Locals seem pretty quiet and keep to themselves but lots of BMX’ers and if you’re lucky you can also sneak a night skate here if soccer training is on.
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.
