Outdoor Skateparks in Auckland

Marlborough Skatepark

Archers Road, Glenfield, Auckland 0627

One of the best skateparks in Auckland, which has it’s downsides: it gets super busy! Make sure you either get there first thing or aim to get there just before sunrise. You’ll often have the park to yourself on late afternoons or at around 6-7pm. Lots of space, various shapes to skate in/on, and a respectful attitude towards skaters of all abilities.

Valonia Skatepark

2 Valonia Street, New Windsor, Auckland 0600

Valonia Skatepark is another good choice for an afternoon skate. Valonia is well built but has limited street style obstacles. However, you’ll find lots of good hips, and the transitions are decent geometries. Much like all good skateparks, it gets very busy, especially with small children, so head there late in the day when they’ve all gone home for dinner.

Waterview Skatepark

17 Waterbank Crescent, Waterview, Auckland 1026

Waterview Skatepark has plenty of open space and various elements to choose from. At Waterview Skatepark there’s two areas: The Bowl and the street style area. There’s different elements for different skill sets, perfect for beginners. It does lack some of the higher skilled elements, but there’s also a pump track.

There’s a distinct lack of shady areas, so if it’s a real sunny day make sure to take protective clothing or sun lotion.

Birkenhead Skateboard Park

21 John Court Street, Birkenhead, Auckland 0626

Birkenhead skatepark is one of our favorites for sure. There’s a great balance between beginner and advanced obstacles, including low/high boxes, ramps ranging from mini to large, and bowls. Plenty of space between elements, allowing a nice free flow amongst users. There’s also a water fountain and tons of parking spaces.

There’s a ton of flat ground space to get in the groove, a lot of boxes and levels for street, and then tops off with a big bowl and a couple quarter pipes.

An all round skatepark located on the north shore close to the beach with some cool concrete ramps to try out and a park close by for kids that might enjoy the swings more.

Great skatepark with a lot of different obstacles and styles. Beautiful big open space, and a popular spot for skateboarding lovers.

The Jack Pringle Skatepark has a 5 foot high mini ramp with flyout quarter to quarter pipe transfer into the existing skatepark.

The arrangement of the new Mini ramp allows it to be redeveloped into a flow bowl setup in the future.

This one has a wide variety of ramps and an awesome bowl. Good place to take the little ones with bikes and scooters.
