Five Dock Skate Park

Five Dock Skate Park
Five Dock Skate Park

Skating is identified as a popular recreational pastime for young people within the City of Canada Bay. The provision of the Five Dock Skate Park encourages skateboarders, BMX and scooter riders off roads, footpaths and thoroughfares and to use a safer, purpose built facility designed in consultation with young people. 

The skate park is a unique dual purpose facility suitable for BMX, skateboards and scooters. The park provides opportunities for users of different skill levels, primarily from intermediate to advanced levels however outer areas of the facility are angled towards beginners.  

Features of the skate park include three bowls, a snake run and a half pipe. 

Where is the skate park?

The park is located on the Corner of First Avenue and Ingham Avenue, Five Dock.

Who can use Five Dock skate park?

The skate park is a free facility intended to be used by all ages and abilities. The park can be used by skateboarders, BMX, scooters and rollerbladers.

Code of conduct and safety guidelines

The Code of Conduct has been developed to reduce the risk of injury to users of the facility and ensure that users of all abilities and skill levels have an opportunity to use the skate park.  

Skate Park users must respect all other users of the park, the general public and the surrounding park facilities:

  • You use the park at your own risk.
  • Please consider your personal safety and the safety of others.
  • Riders under the age of 10 years must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Use of the park is only permitted during daylight hours.
  • Consider a 'fair go' for all users.
  • Skate within your limit/know your ability.
  • For your safety always wear protective clothing, helmet, elbow and knee pads.
  • No glass is allowed in the skate park and surrounding areas.
  • Report misuse or vandalism immediately.
  • Refrain from using the facility if there are any signs of damage.  Alcohol or other drugs are not to be consumed in the park.
  • BMX riders are requested to consider the impact the BMX pegs have on the bowl coping and limit this activity in the interest of other users.
  • Scooter riders should be particularly vigilant regarding other users attempting aerial manoeuvres.

Tips for beginners

  • Skateboarding (and related sports - BMX, rollerblading and scooter riding) involve a level of risk, facilities should always be used at the parents/users own discretion.
  • Parents of children need to assess their child's skill level and ensure that they have the ability to safely use the facility without posing risk to themselves or others.
  • The facility is intended to be ridden in one motion (e.g. from one end to the other or across through jumps etc), as such, all areas of the park are likely to be used by more experienced users.Young children should be constantly supervised in this environment.
  • Chat to other/older users and seek advice from experienced users.
  • Be courteous to other users. The park can be crowded with other users practicing their tricks and moves. Wait your turn to practice and give other users the space they need to do their moves.
  • Use the features of the park that are within your skill level. If you are a beginner use smaller areas of the bowl rather than skating off high elevation points.
  • If you do fall off your board/bike/scooter try and move out of the way quickly so that you too do not become an obstacle and pose further risk to yourself or others.
  • Follow the general flow of the skate park and move in the same direction as other skaters.
  • Refrain from sitting in the skate bowl, if you need to rest, move away from the skate facility.
  • Assist Council to maintain the skate park to a high standard, inspect the skate park before use for any signs of debris such as branches or litter and remove before using.

How to report misuse or maintenance issues?

Maintenance of skate parks is the responsibility of the City of Canada Bay in partnership with the users of the skate park facility. When using the facility refrain from littering or consuming products in glass.
