Toddler Friendly Scooter and Skate Parks Brisbane and Gold Coast

Skate Parks

Brisbane skate parks (and their Gold Coast counterparts) are often dominated by big kids that can dwarf our little ones. However, there are a few family-friendly spots where you can go to take advantage of facilities that are better designed to meet the needs of little feet.

Benefits of scooting and skate-boarding for little ones

Not only will children be getting out and about in the fresh air, but they’ll also:

  • Be practicing hand-eye coordination

  • Work on balance skills

  • Learn about safety and taking a number of healthy risks which promotes confidence and resilience

  • Interact with others and improve social skills

What makes a skatepark toddler-friendly?

Here are the following criteria we used for the below list. Most of these skate parks are:

  • Quieter and calmer (particularly during school hours)

  • Equipped with other features like scooter tracks and bikeways

  • Balanced with smaller and bigger ramps so children can work on skills before graduating to bigger equipment

  • Equipped with a range of other family-friendly facilities like bathrooms (some with change rooms), open green space for picnics, BBQs and shaded seating areas and easily-accessible car parking

Toddler friendly skate parks Brisbane and Logan

As recommended by local parents, your best picks are:

  • BROWNS PLAINS skate park (Yancey Street, Browns Plains)

  • CREASTMEAD skate park (10 Augusta Street, Creastmead)

  • DEAGON skate park (137 Southerden Street, Sandgate)

  • DECEPTION BAY skate park (Deception Bay Road, Deception Bay) (This is very close to our Deception Bay centre and has a separate ‘beginners bowl’ for little legs)

  • GREENBANK “RHINO” skate park (2 Sheppards Drive, Greenbank) (The design of this park may promote more climbing than scooting as it’s quite sharp)

  • LOGAN VILLAGE skate park (22 Wharf Street, Logan Village)

  • REDCLIFFE skate park (437 Oxley Avenue, Redcliffe)

  • SPRINGFIELD skate park (45-65 Springfield Parkway, Springfield)

  • TYGUM PARK skate park (Tygum Road, Waterford West)

  • UNDERWOOD skate park (982-1006 Underwood Road, Priestdale)

Parent tip: Time your visit. Earlier in the morning on weekends and during the school day are better than in the afternoon on a Saturday.

Toddler friendly skate parks Gold Coast

As recommended by local parents, your best picks are:

  • COOLANGATTA skate park (Jarvis Lane, Coolangatta)

  • MATTOCKS ROAD skate park (Varsity Lakes Community Resource Centre, Jim Harris Park, Mattocks Road, Varsity Lakes)

Parent tip: Slip, slop, slap. Even being out in the early morning is no protection against the harsh rays of the sun – particularly in South-East Queensland.
