Whether you bring the kids' bike, scooter or skateboard, from pre-schoolers to teen gatherings, here are our HOTTEST SKATEPARKS in the Illawarra:
Fairy Meadow: Guest Park, 2 Cambridge Ave, Fairy Meadow 2519
A great choice for all ages, it's a decent size, high ramps, concrete courses, ample green fields to kick a ball in after, plus a bonus remote controlled car track is next door! Note - the park is often busy and highly popular with teens and younger kids will need close supervision :)

Super fun skate park! Lake views to boot... A good bank section, ledges and rails - a more gentle intro for younger skates too.
Unanderra Skatepark, Central Rd, Unanderra NSW 2526
A more basic, gentle bowl choice, better for beginners and younger bike / scooter riders...
Shellharbour Skatepark, Pioneer Park, Addison St, Shellharbour NSW 2529
Having undergone a recent impressive upgrade, this spacious, enclosed concrete bowl with sweet street course and interesting tight quarter, is a huge hit with small and big kids alike!
