Draft Skate Melbourne Plan

The City of Melbourne is a world renowned skating destination. With skateboarding in the 2020 Olympics, its global popularity continues to grow.

Skating enlivens public spaces and benefits the local community. It’s a sustainable way to get around, stay healthy, happy and connect with others.

As the city grows it’s important to consider everyone’s needs. That’s why we’re developing the Skate Melbourne Plan. Our draft Plan sets out how we aim to support and manage skating in the city.
