Fawkner Skatepark is a rad park with heaps of different unique features that you wont find anywhere else in Melbourne. The skatepark was updated in 2013 with fresh designs provided by en:locus, catering for varying skill levels. There are transitions for days with a reasonably sized open bowl along with humps, knuckles and feature islands in the middle. The bowl has sloping characteristics that offer skaters every 1/4 size progression from 1 – 5ft enabling you to learn, practice and master yours tricks on whatever you feel comfortable with. The sloping edges get more aggressive in areas and are surprisingly easy and gnarly to grind down. The recently extended street section has its signature 1/3 rainbow quarter with a gap in the middle that you can crawl through. The street section also includes humps, jumps, banks, rails, boxes, ledges and more. For a small space they have done a fantastic job of squeezing in so many obstacles that appeal to a range of skaters from beginners through to pros.
There is a BBQ, drinking fountain, seats and a kids play area, all close to the skatepark. The skatepark also gets plenty of shade in the afternoons thanks to the established surrounding trees. Overall Fawkner Skatepark is an epic spot to skate in and would be amongst Melbourne best skateparks, if it was only a little bigger.
