Willunga skatepark is a beginner to intermediate level street style skate park. The park includes a half pipe, pyramids, ledges and hips, mini ramp and several street style transition obstacles. This is a quieter and smaller skatepark than some of the others we’ve come across, and a great spot for littles on scooters or skateparks to start honing their craft.

Goolwa Skatepark

Goolwa Skatepark

We just had to round out the list best skateparks in Adelaide with the Goolwa Skatepark! We reckon this skatepark should absolutely win the prize for the most colourful skatepark in Adelaide. In fact, the brilliant murals adorning the skate bowl were created by three street artists commissioned by the local council in a bid to deter unsightly graffiti tagging, and generally make it the bright and welcoming spot for all. We’d say they did pretty well! The skatepark area has an asphalt pump track, a dirt BMX track, and bench seats. There’s also a smart solar bench with a solar powered charging station and free Wi-Fi, meaning devices and phones can be used and charged while your kids are entertaining themselves. Hoorah!
