Get your skateboard down to a Council skate park with facilities for people of all ages to feel welcome, learn new skills and get active and healthy. Council has been upgrading and adding new skate parks across Brisbane, giving our city's avid skateboarders more to see and do. Find a skate park near you. Plus, if you get bored of doing 180s and board slides, you can ride your scooter or BMX at many skate parks too.

Safety and etiquette

Remember, it’s fun and games until someone gets hurt. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing including sneakers or closed-in footwear and the right safety gear, like a helmet, no matter your wheel of choice. Be aware of people around you and leave a first aid kit in the car for the odd spill. Don’t forget a bike repair kit and wheel pump too in case you lose air.
