The Shire is committed to the development of Skate Parks and ramps across the peninsula. We have built skate parks in Mount Eliza, Mornington, Somerville, Hastings, Rosebud, Sorrento, Balnarring and Rye. Two mobile ramps are rotated around smaller townships in the Shire.
Construction for the new Skate Park located in Civic Court, Balnarring is now completed.
The skate park size is approximately twenty (20) metres by thirty five (35) metres and includes a continuous bowl to depth 2.2m, hard stand concrete and numerous street skate elements.
Playce landscape designers developed the design of the Skate Park with input from the local community.

Built in 2000, the Hastings Skate Park is over 400 square metres of smooth concrete for skaters, scooters and BMX riders. Designed by Convic, the park is made up of a three quarter open mini bowl with spine, banks, ledges, hips and quarter pipes. There is something here for all age groups and abilities.
Rosebud consists of a Plaza Style Park aimed to replicate street style elements. Designed by Convic and the Rosebud Skate Community, the park features different surfaces from buffed concrete to large tiled surfaces. The primary focus is the large variety of ledges and steps.Skaters have open space, different sets of stairs, a banked corner, a variety of gaps and plenty of ledges that will cater for all age groups. This design offers skaters a unique opportunity to experiment and adapt to the skate environment.
