With 25 skateparks located across the Central Coast, there are plenty of bowls to ride, rails to slide and boxes to ollie off. We’ve traversed the Central Coast to bring you skateparks that cater to all levels, ages and wheels – from tots on three-wheeled scooters to teens on skateboards, plus rollerskaters, BMX bandits and rollerblades.

So, in no particular order, here are all of the Central Coast’s skateparks! Happy grinding.
