New Skate Park to be built in the City of Adelaide
Adelaide is set to receive a new $3 million skate park to be delivered by the government and Adelaide City Council. Due to be completed in 2021, it will be integrated into the Gladys Elphick Park/Narnungga (Park 25).
Update 22 January 2021
Construction on the new skate has begun and is expected to be completed by mid-2021 with the new City Skate Park to be opened to the public later this year.
The previous city skate park on North Terrace was removed in 2015 to make way for a Uni SA development. Since then, skaters and riders have been petitioning for a new skate park.
The new skate park will be located directly opposite the RAH and is conveniently located close to public transport. The park also has several multi-purpose sporting fields.
Update 2 October 2020
The design of the new City Skate Park has been revealed and construction will start in December 2020.
Following extensive investigations at the proposed location of the City Skate Park, the concept design has now been completed and detailed design is currently underway. They are aiming for construction to begin at Gladys Elphick Park/Narnungga (Park 25) by the end of 2020 and be completed mid 2021.

The local skating community has played a key role in shaping the vision for the new park, which will be based under shady trees in Gladys Elphick Park/Narnungga and close to tram, train and bus stops.
