Skate & BMX  Parks

Skate & BMX Parks

The City of Albany currently has four skate parks catering to all abilities ranging from the historic Hare Street 'Skate Track' to the regional 'Albany Sk8 & BMX Park'.

We ask all skate park users to obey safety signs which includes the wearing of helmets on all Albany parks.

Youth Challenge Park

Officially launched in September 2021, Youth Challenge Park is Albany's newest skate park, combining a state-of-the art pump track, skate plaza and bowl behind PCYC on Sanford Road.

The park offers improved access and multi-use spaces including an asphalt pump track, skills park, dirt jumps, skate plaza, bowl, activity areas, pedestrian pathways, public amenities and spectator viewing zones for all users and abilities.

A pump track provides the major feature of the park with a width for 6 to 8 lines with varying challenging features and elements to suit a range of mountain bike and BMX skaters.

Comprising of three main sections, the skate plaza and bowl showcases a 5 to 7-foot-deep kidney shaped bowl, a three stair with across and down handrails and an assortment of street skating items.

The space also provides areas to host events, workshops and activities on a much larger scale which will boost tourism and drive economic growth to the region.

The three main sections of the Youth Challenge Park project were complete in September 2021 with the multipurpose court and car park works starting construction towards the end of 2021.

Historic Hare Street Skate Track

Albany is home to the historic Snake Run, reputedly the oldest skate park in the world still in use. Hare Street appears regularly in skate magazines featuring international skaters. Hare Street is quite a fast run with vert walls and hip, and is suitable for the intermediate to advanced skaters.

Mill Park Skate Park

Mill Park is home to a small skate park with flat banks, grind rail, grind box and a small bowl. A community BMX pump track is also located adjacent to the park.

Lake Weerlara Park

Located off Parker Street, Lake Weerlara is a small bowl. It is mainly for beginners, but more advanced skaters and BMXers will still have fun using this park from time to time.
