“The curved ledge (cafe side) is such a nice and unique feature, it's got to stay . The banked boxes and rails are also plenty fun.”

“It's a backwards and forwards park focussed on grinds. Could have more variance in other styles of objects...”

ShaneD says:

“It is a good size and has a few different areas to ride. Good for beginners with more experienced features to grow with.”

D.Freeman says:

“Riverside has some key elements that keep attracting participants over its 20 year history. Open planning, focus on street, and good flow.”

“i enjoy how it has a decent flow and how its also in the city of melbourne. the cafe/skate shop is really convienient”

Richard Flude says:

“Obstacles are well spaced out. The hips are a perfect gradient and the one with the curved ledge on top has a pleasing obtuse corner. ”

“Would love a slightly more mellow hip with not so smoothed edges. Also a smaller hubba would be nice. Maybe a manual pad that changes height”

How would you improve the Riverslide Skate Park?

13 February, 2020

genericUser123 says:

“More round rails and coping boxes. perhaps upgrade the quarters at the river end for a bowl. Improve traction of the quarters as well.”

13 February, 2020

Timbotao says:

“Expansion: more flow features, and quarter pipes, maybe in-park wide miniramp with a spine section, other flow, not a single bowl.”

12 February, 2020

ShaneD says:

“A bowl, a big bowl”

11 February, 2020

12345 says:

“I think add a bowl for people who skate transition but keep/add ledges and rails for the people who skate street”

4 February, 2020

D.Freeman says:

“Keeping the elements that work in a new modern design. A square bowl near the substation, banked skatable perimeter, hubbas, better funboxes”

31 January, 2020

skatemelbs says:

“certainly have a bigger and better street section where theres stair sets, nicely sized down rails, hubbas and then some little quaters.”

30 January, 2020

Izzy says:

“A small mellow quarter at 1-2ft high for beginner skaters to learn to drop in and practice riding the coping.”

29 January, 2020

elbo6793 says:

“Skateable features on the way into the park added into the gardens”

29 January, 2020

elbo6793 says:

“Remove metal 1/4 and wedge ledge to incorporate a rectangular bowl. A euro with long platform leading to the bowl”

28 January, 2020

Arno says:

“Probably more transition ,pole jam And a gap would be really cool”

27 January, 2020

Mycool says:

“It is only a street orientated skatepark at the moment, needs mini ramp and bowl sections. ”

24 January, 2020

Mark says:

“Plaza styles skatepark Heaps of ledges, rails, down hubbas False garden gaps and stair sets with obstacles to fit all skill levels ”
