Byron Bay Skatepark - Byron Bay
- Small skate bowl
- Located behind the BYS activity centre
Behind the Youth Activity Centre (YAC) in Gilmore Crescent, you will find a very small skatepark with only a tiny bowl with cracked concrete to its name. A disappointing park for Australia’s most easterly skate facility however, there are petitions out there with the intent of upgrading the current paltry offering. Byron Shire Council has informed me that there are no immediate plans for a skatepark in Byron but it is an often requested facility and the consultants that are currently preparing the Masterplan for Byron are well aware of its potential popularity. Information regarding this will be be updated as soon as I am aware of any changes to the current situation.
In the meantime, visit Suffolk Park skatepark – less than 10 minutes south of Byron Bay – which many people count as the Byron skatepark because the actual Byron skatepark is so clearly lacking.
The closest public toilets can be found at the nearby library which you can see the back of from the skatepark. A pathway bisects the park and leads to Middleton Street – coming out between Byron Bay Courthouse and the library and opposite Sundive Diving Centre and Expressoheads Cafe.
