The Wendouree Skate Bowl has been destroyed and turned into rubble. It was unfortunate for the Ballarat skateboarding community to discover and disappoint that the council didn’t let anyone know before the demolition. You can still see pics of the vintage skate bowl below.
Built sometime during the gold rush, the Wendouree Skate Bowl is an older-style basic concrete bowl with roll in Norman and Dowling St Wendouree, Vic (Next to C.E. Brown Reserve, Ballarat). Compared to a newer style bowl, the Wendouree bowl is very dated with no coping whatsoever and zero features apart from a crusty roll in and a gradual tapering down before dropping more steeply to a tiny mini (again with no coping) where you can get stuck out in the flats for days. Not sure what type of line you’re supposed to take through this bad boy, but I certainly ain’t finding it.

Two stars are too generous.
