Built by Gravity in 2011, Mile End skatepark is designed primarily for street skaters, with ledges for days, but also features a challenging bowl.
Skatepark design and Layout
The skatepark is a circuit of street features with some pump bumps in the middle, which makes it popular with street skaters. On the far side of the park next to the bowl is a long ledge running about 15 metres across.
There is a mellow flat bank adjoining the bowl which is used as a starting point for a run, which approaches the flat bank hip to ledge. From there, following the line there is a flat bar, then a planter, followed by a taco, then a manny pad, and finally a irregular shaped pyramid feature before the bowl.
The bowl has a section which can be used for learning The Pump however one side is flat and other bowled out, so it’s tricky. The pump bumps are also good for learning to ride over and to pump.
Across the road is the Mile End Children’s Park and Pavilion. It has a toilet and kiosk (although currently temporarily closed) is good for keeping the smaller kids occupied.
