I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

The Skate Park on Avenue Road at Cumberland Park is a popular one for skate enthusiasts.
Not only skateboard and longboard riders, but bike riders like to bmx in the park on the ramps too.
It's only quite a modest size compared to the Minkarra Park in Flagstaff Hill, but it has the advantage of convenience for the locals. Most weekends and evenings see a large group of kids and teenagers happily sharing the park and trying new tricks with their skates.
The wall at one end helps to reduce noise for the neighbours, and together with overhanging trees provides some shade in summer. It also holds a colourful collection of street art which makes the skatepark more attractive.
When I called in first several guys had brought a bmx bike to the park, but were just sitting around talking. But after I brought the camera out they were happy to get on their bikes and put them though their paces on the ramps.
