For anyone with an interest in skateboarding, it can be difficult to find interesting places to skate in, without the hassle that comes with being asked to move along by the police. For that reason, it is invaluable to have a place where skaters rule and the terrain is built for the purpose of maximising the height of your vert ramps.
In many ways, Campbelltown is a skaters paradise. Sitting at the intersection of Hollylea and Campbelltown Roads, Leumeah, Campbelltown Skate Park provides a location for in-line skaters, skateboarders, scooters and BMX bike riders to develop their skills in a safe and exclusive environment.
Campbelltown Skate Park boasts various features that makes it ideal for avid skaters, including a 1.8m transitional hip, a 1.8m high banked hip, a transition wave wall, and even a split-level performance stage. For beginners, the Council has also provided a mini-pipe and square rail to practice on.
The Skate Park is designed for demonstrations of skill and agility: with BBQ facilities and grandstands for spectators, there are regular activities and showcases that allow skaters to demonstrate some of the trickiest moves possible on two to four wheels.
Campbelltown Skate Park was founded as an initiative to engage young people in the local area. As a result, there are various events advertised the old-fashioned way - on fliers in grounds. Alternatively, the Youth Development Unit will advise you on events in the park if you call them on 4645 4835.
