Opened in April 2007, the Suffolk Park skatepark offers a smooth surface and appropriate skate graffiti. The skatepark has a wide variety of structures to skate including; a small bowl, small ledge, rail, quarter pipes, a ¾ bowl, banks, a triangle and due to its popularity has recently been upgraded and extended (July 2017) over the previously unused basketball court to include an new section of ramps, rails, stairs and more.
Situated right next to two tennis courts with a small playground just across from the soccer nets and a recent extensively equipped new shaded playground adjacent, the skatepark is practically surrounded by other sporting sites – perfect for any siblings who are not skaters. Having said that, many young children come here to have fun on their balance bikes, trikes and scooters and there is a real family friendly vibe to the place. Other recent additions are the numerous covered picnic tables and barbecue area.
Water and toilet facilities are available onsite and less than a 2 minute walk up the footpath is Baz ‘n’ Shaz, the local grocery store, where you can stop off for a refreshing drink and snack. This skatepark is under 10 minutes drive from the centre of Byron Bay; in fact, many people count the Suffolk Park skate as the Byron skatepark because the actual Byron skatepark is so clearly lacking.
Located in Beech Drive between Baywood Chase and Byron Hills, this is a tranquil residential area away from the crowds.
