The Bailey Reserve Skate Park will be closed for reconstruction from March to spring 2018.
Bailey Reserve Skate Park redevelopment
It’s the only skate park within Glen Eira, and the improvements will enhance the vivacity and diversity of Bailey Reserve. Construction is scheduled to start in March.
The new skate park will provide a contemporary, challenging, flexible and modern skate space that reflects community needs and ideas expressed through the consultation process. It will feature a number of skating elements, including an open bowled area with hips and a spine flowing onto a fun street section with banks, ledges and rails. The new skate park will provide a space for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy. It will also feature new plantings, perimeter fencing, rest zones for viewers and local lighting.
This project is an action from Council’s Open Space Strategy which seeks to provide upgrades to recreational facilities and social spaces within Bailey Reserve. It is anticipated that the skate park redevelopment will be completed by spring 2018.

Bailey Reserve Skate Park
Constructed by the City in 2000, with the assistance of a grant from Sport and Recreation Victoria, the skate facility at Bailey Reserve is a great venue for the young people of Glen Eira.
Skate park designer and former skating champion Tony Hallam was assisted by about 30 young people from Glen Eira, aged 8 to 17, who worked with him to create this much-needed facility.
People meet regularly with their BMX bikes, rollerblades and skate boards to try their skills on the low level street circuit. The facility has a number of skateable elements including a concrete pad, ramps, quarter pipes, grind poles and fun box.
