THE Top Skateparks in Hong Kong for All Skateboarding Skill Levels

THE Top Skateparks in Hong Kong for All Skateboarding Skill Levels 

Have you ever considered trying skateboarding as a hobby? Or maybe you used to skateboard as a kid and want to learn new skills?

 Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, keep reading. 

Mastering the ollies, kickflips, and other tricks does sound great, but before you can reach that skill level, you have to practice (like a lot). 

And the place where you practice matters. Luckily for you, we’ve already done the legwork (and knee-work, and elbow-work, and maybe a few of us bashed our chins too, honestly) of finding the very best skateparks in Hong Kong!

Skateboard Ground at Morrison Hill Road Playground

Location: Sung Tak Street, Morrison Hill Rd, Wan Chai 

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – Open 24 hours 

Street-element obstacles: Ramps, stairs, bowls, rails

Best for: Beginner to intermediate skaters 

Skateboard Ground at Morrison Hill Road Playground is a long-standing skatepark in the city that’s used by both total beginners and intermediate skaters. It’s conveniently located in Wan Chai and is open around the clock, so many local skaters frequent this place.  

Anyway, if you’re already an expert skater and are looking for more challenging obstacles and facilities, you can skip this park. If you’re just looking for a relaxed time, though, it’s good.

See, most of the skating space here is flat, and it only has small ramps and rails, so it’s better suited for skaters who are practicing and developing new skills. 

Hong Kong Velodrome Skatepark

Location: Tseung Kwan O Skatepark, 號, 108 Po Hong Rd, Tseung Kwan O 

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 8 AM to 10 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Half-pipe bowls, ramps, ledges

Best for: Beginner to expert skaters 

The Hong Kong Velodrome Park isn’t just Hong Kong’s first local indoor cycling facility. This Tseung Kwan O park also features a large skatepark designed by Convic, a leading skatepark design company in the world. 

The three curved half-pipe bowls offer a smooth transition from the flat ground – the perfect spot for people who want to learn the basic skills. Meanwhile, the differently leveled rails and ramps are great for pros honing their advanced skateboarding skills. 

Anyway, if you wish to take a break from skateboarding, you can also check out other facilities like a climbing wall, jogging track, and playground. Besides that, the park is also equipped with showers, changing rooms, and drinking fountains. Super-convenient! 

Lai Chi Kok Park Skatepark

Location: 1 Lai Wan Rd, Lai Chi Kok 

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 7 AM to 10 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Quarter-pipe bowls, rails, mini ramps, stairs 

Best for: Beginner to intermediate skaters 

Lai Chi Kok Park Skatepark is a classic pick for many local skaters because it’s the first-ever certified international standard skatepark in Hong Kong. 

This skatepark is divided into three sections and is designed to suit different levels of skating tricks and skills. The first section, the beginner’s run, is a good spot for kiddos who just want to test out riding a skateboard.  

Meanwhile, the second and third sections are great for those who wish to master doing tricks on quarter-pipe bowls, mini ramps, and rails. However, since there isn’t much flow in this skatepark, we think it’s not that challenging for expert skaters. 

PS: the quarter-pipe bowls are also suitable for freestyle BMX, inline skating, and freestyle scootering. 

Po Kong Village Road Skatepark

Location: 140號 Po Kong Village Rd, Tsz Wan Shan 

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 10 AM to 10:30 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Ramps, half-pipe bowls, rails, ledges 

Best for: Beginners to expert skaters 

Po Kong Village Road Skatepark is based on Sydney’s famous Bondi skate bowl, so this place is used to host many skateboarding competitions and events.  

The skatepark has three half-pipe bowls featuring slopes with different gradients, so beginners and pros alike can have fun trying out new skills and tricks here. Apart from that, there are several ramps, ledges, and rails for added level of difficulty. 

Just a heads up, though: wearing protective gear is a must in this skatepark, so don’t forget to bring a helmet and some knee pads.

Sk85ive2 Indoor Skatepark

Location: Heng Seng Industrial Building, 185-187號 Wai Yip St, Kwun Tong 

Operating hours: Monday to Friday – 11 AM to 8 PM, Saturday to Sunday – 11 AM to 6 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Ramps, curbs, rails, banks, ledges 

Best for: Beginner to expert skaters 

Want to know a spot where you can enjoy skateboarding, rain or shine? Come check out the Sk85ive2 Indoor Skatepark in Kwun Tong. 

This 3,000-square-meter indoor skatepark has a good air conditioning system, so you can go skateboarding even during humid summer days!  

It’s also your best choice if you prefer a more intimate skating experience. You see, this skatepark only accepts 15 people inside at a time, so you’ll have plenty of time and space to master your skateboarding skills. 

Anyway, if you want to learn the ropes from the ground up, you can also sign up for skateboarding classes offered by professional coaches from the Hong Kong Skateboards Association (AHKSA) here. 

Urban Park

Location: 4/F, Hysan Place, 500 Hennessy Rd, Causeway Bay

Operating hours: Monday to Thursday – 12 PM to 8:30 PM, Friday to Sunday – 12 PM to 11 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Ramps, ledges, stairs

Best for: Intermediate to expert skaters  

If you happen to be in Causeway Bay and just want a quick skateboard session, Urban Park is a good spot to visit. 

This skatepark’s facilities are designed by a professional team from AHKSA, so you can expect challenging ramps and ledges. 

That said, we don’t really recommend it for total beginners because the floors here are laminated wood – a bit slippery. Plus, the ledges and ramps here are hard to conquer without solid basic skills, as a few beginners on our team found out.  

Tung Chung North Park Skateboard Ground

Location: Man Tung Rd, Tung Chung

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday – 7 AM to 11 PM 

Street-element obstacles: Ramps, benches, bowls, railings 

Best for: Beginner to expert skaters 

Tung Chung North Park Skateboard Ground is Lantau Island’s only skatepark and it’s set in a 3.8-hectare public playground. 

What we like about this skatepark is that it offers so much space. Besides that, it showcases several railings, bowls, ramps, and benches with varying levels of difficulty so skateboarders of all skill levels can mingle here.  

If you’re done skateboarding, you can access a range of free outdoor recreational facilities, including a pet garden, soccer pitch, and even a fitness corner, to name a few. 

Bonus: Our Safety Tips to Remember When Skateboarding 

Skateboarding can test your body – especially if you don’t follow precautionary measures! Here are our top safety tips for newbies.

  1. Have the right skateboarding/protective gear. 

Aside from the skateboard, you also have to be equipped with the right skateboarding gear to protect yourself from an accident. Here’s what to get: 

  • Skateboarding, multi-sport helmet 
  • Wrist guards
  • Knee pads
  • Elbow pads 
  • Closed-toe shoes with cupsoles(for added grip and support)
  1. Skate only in safe and designated areas. 

Only skate on designated skateparks and don’t go near traffic or pedestrians!

Besides that, don’t skateboard when it’s raining or when the skatepark’s surface is wet. 

  1. Learn how to fall properly when skateboarding. 

Falling is inevitable when skateboarding. Big injuries from falls aren’t.

“How should you fall when skateboarding?” you might ask. Basically, try to roll and land on the fleshy parts of your body rather than catching or stabilizing yourself using your hands.  

  1. Double-check your skateboard before you ride. 

Check your skateboard’s deck, trucks, and wheels at least twice before you go skateboarding. Look out for: 

  • Loose or broken parts
  • A slippery top surface
  • Nicks and cracks on wheels 
  1. Master basic skateboarding skills before moving on to more complicated moves or tricks.  

Trust us: you don’t want to try doing ollies, tic-tacs, flip and shove-it tricks before you get the basics. 

How do we know? Let’s just say we needed a lot of bandages and disinfectant.
