Who manages the Brisbane skate parks?
As with many other public facilities around Brisbane area, the Brisbane City Council manages all of the local skate parks. Likewise, the Moreton Bay Council looks after the skate parks in the Moreton Bay Region.
The Brisbane City Council is constantly upgrading the skate parks and constructing new ones in areas of high demand. Currently, the Brisbane City Council has just constructed skate parks in both Paddington and Inala.

Be prepared for skate parks!
It is important to remember that skate parks in the Brisbane City Region are unsupervised public areas. This means that anyone can have access to the skating facility at any time.
For safety and security reasons, it’s important that parents or guardians supervise children who wish to use the skate parks. If you have independent teenagers, ensure they are accompanied by friends and that they have a mode of communication on them in case there is an accident or emergency.
If you’re still concerned about the safety of your young skaters among their older counterparts, there is another solution. As well as maintaining and constructing skate parks, the Brisbane City Council also offers skateboarding coaching clinics over the school holidays as part of their ‘Chilled Out’ program. Along with teaching the basics of skateboarding, these clinics also teach young skaters skate park etiquette. This includes explaining the importance of waiting their turn at a safe distance, wearing protective gear and respecting their fellow skaters.
This program is offered to 10-17 year olds who are interested in skateboarding. To see when the next session is on or to book a place, click here.
Skating is a fun hobby and a rewarding sporting activity. By giving your kids the chance to skate at a local skating park, you can be sure they will continue the sport for years to come.
