Outdoor Skateparks in Auckland
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.
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.
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.
