These facilities were previously used for tennis as well, but tennis was moved out to accommodate a temporary skate park, that was built here in 2016.
The temporary skate facilities were built here as a stop-gap measure after a different skate park, on North Terrace, was closed early in the 2010’s to make way for expansion of the bio-medical precinct on North Terrace.
The temporary skate park was constructed within the area of the basketball and tennis courts. The works in 2016 included a skate section, and upgraded shelters. Built for both experienced and inexperienced skaters, the facility included quarter pipes, flat banks, ledges and rails.
A new skatepark on the other side of the City commenced construction in early 2021, in Park 25, off West Terrace opposite Hindley Street.
