​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​About​​​

The $1.5m Edge Skatepark is one of Western Australia’s biggest skating facilities. The 1800m2 Skatepark features a competition-level bowl, street section, beginner's area, p​arkour obstacles and a basketball half-court. 

Everyone is welcome at The Edge Skatepark, whether they skateboard, scooter, BMX, rollerblade or enjoy basketball or parkour. The various skating zones allow users of all ages and skill levels to enjoy this inclusive space.​

The Edge Skatepark has been designed in consultation with local skaters, young people and parents.
Kwinana's rich industrial history is reflected in the Edge Skatepark, with metal textures, industrial-inspired patterns and steel pipework throughout. Elements of the ocean, industrial area and natural environment are represented in the colour scheme, while pylons recovered from the Kwinana Jetty have been creatively repurposed as public art. 

​The Edge Skatepark was designed in consultation with the local community including young people, parents, skaters and a specially-formed Skatepark Reference Group.
