Reservoir Skatepark was once a contender for Melbourne's worst skatepark, however it was upgraded in 2013 and is now amongst Melbourne's best street skateparks. The skatepark upgrade was designed by Playce and incorporates heaps of recycled objects that you may find on a typical Melbourne street. The award winning design has attracted attention to the legit street skatepark from across the world. The skatepark has been built on top of existing basketball and netball courts. The course concrete will shred up any item of clothing, although the cracks appearing though out the park are more of a concern and something to keep an eye out for, especially for the street skaters who roll around on tiny wheels. It is very cool street skatepark and a rad addition to complement the growing street skating spots in Melbourne.
