13 Best Skateparks In Singapore To Land Your Skateboarding & Inline Skating Tricks, With Pro Tips

Skateparks in Singapore


Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned rider looking to switch it up, it can be difficult to find a skatepark that is close to home and not overwhelmingly crowded, especially when some of these skateparks in Singapore don’t even show up on Google maps.

Having frequented these spots for years, I’ve embarked on a quest to compile a comprehensive guide, listing all publicly available skateparks coupled with tips on the best timings to visit and the best spots for beginners to hone their craft.


What should I prepare before skateboarding?


Starting off with attire: it’s highly recommended that you wear long sleeves and long pants, especially if you’re just starting out. This helps to protect your skin from any abrasions if you happen to fall while practicing. Wearing protective gear such as wrist pads, knee pads, elbow pads, and a helmet is good practice as well. Don’t worry about looking silly – safety first.

Bring your own water bottle to ensure that you stay hydrated. The UV index in Singapore has been really high recently, which means you have to take extra precautions to protect your skin. This means applying sunblock frequently and wearing a cap if you aren’t wearing a helmet.

Or, choose to skate in the evenings when it’s cooler. There are skateparks in Singapore that are open till late or even 24 hours a day:

What are the different types of skateboards?

1. Por Vida Skateboarding


First indoor skatepark in SG

Rain or shine, you’ll be able to get your skating fix at Por Vid Skateboarding. The 6,708sqft space is entirely indoors so wet weather won’t be able to put a damper on you nailing an ollie. The place is large enough for newbies and pros, young or old. There are a myriad of flat surfaces to warm up, as well as obstacles like flat bars, rails, wave ramps, and manual pads.

2. Xtreme Skatepark


The “OG” skatepark


Xtreme Skatepark is one of the most well-known – and most crowded – skate parks in Singapore thanks to its many obstacles and features unique only to the park. With its construction costing a whopping $7.6 million, you can expect the best features – including quick-drying concrete so you’ll be back skating 10-15 minutes after a slight drizzle.

What’s more – the skatepark is just a stone’s throw away from East Coast Lagoon Food Village, making it an ideal destination for a day-out with your kakis.


Street Course


skateparks in singapore-Xtreme Skatepark landscape

This particular area at Xtreme Skatepark is the perfect spot for beginners with gentle inclines or banks to roll up and down on, and a small quarter pipe ramp to try your first drop-in. Throughout the park, you’ll also find ledges of various heights where you can practice grinds once you’ve learnt how to ollie – or jump – onto them.

The street course also offers some of the tallest – and steepest – ramps in Singapore, complete with a whopping 12-foot (3.65 metres) roll-in ramp for some insane airs across the funbox and the quarter pipe on the opposite side.


Combo Bowl

Once you’re confident with ramps and moving at fast speeds, the combo bowl at Xtreme Skatepark lets you take your skills to the next level.

Like most bowls, there is no way out but to pump yourself, or sprint and lift yourself up its steep sides. This takes a little practice, but if all else fails, there’s a safety ladder should you find yourself stuck.

This combo bowl is the only one in Singapore, and comes with an over-vert or “cradle” – a slight overhang for more advanced manoeuvres – along with a towering bank wall and vert ramps lining some parts of the bowl.

Pro tip: If you want to avoid the crowd and see some pro skaters in action, visit Xtreme Skatepark from 8PM-10PM onwards.


Vert Bowl


skateparks in singapore-Xtreme Skatepark vert bowl
A vert bowl is named for its “vert” sides – which are curved ramps with an initial drop of 90 degrees

Not for the faint of heart, this 3.6-metre deep vert bowl is a fear-inducing drop-in that only practised pros dare to conquer. Purely meant for advanced skaters, the vert bowl is a great place to catch some air, coupled with backflips, 360s, 540s, and all the other mad tricks that most can only dream of.

That said, I’ve seen skaters in their teenage years riding this vert bowl like it’s a piece of cake, so it’s definitely doable with tons of practice in the combo bowl and on vert ramps.

3. Trifecta


>10 types of skate bowl features for tricks & jumps


skateparks singapore - trifecta

If you’re familiar with the skate scene in Bali and California, you’ll like the skatepark at Trifecta by The Ride Side. It’s designed by the same person behind renowned skateparks like Pretty Poison Backyard Pool and Kuta Skate Park, which are known for their plethora of skating features for skaters to do tricks.

skateparks singapore - trifecta skate bowl

The skate bowl here has more than 10 features like wave ramps, circuits, and peaks that have been designed to be used with regular skateboards, longboards, and surfskates. It’s suitable for all levels, whether you’ve just started or have been cruising for a long time now. Best of all, it’s free of charge to enter.

Open areas for beginners to practice

Located just a stone’s throw away from Bishan MRT station, Bishan (Harmony) Skatepark features three main areas. Coded by colour, there’s a street section in red, a flat area in green and a wide, shallow bowl in blue.

The street section offers one of the few spines in Singapore, which are two ramps placed back-to-back. There’s also a waist-level grind rail for those looking for an intermediate obstacle to conquer.

Nearby, you’ll find a large open area that has a few makeshift obstacles. Thanks to its smooth, soft flooring and railings all around, this is one of the best and safest spots to learn the bare basics on flat ground.

Just beyond the flat green area is a wide bowl that provides a gentle incline to practice your first drop-ins before conquering steeper quarter pipe ramps. The circular track surrounding the wide bowl is also an ideal spot for inline skaters to practise crossovers by constantly crossing one foot over the other to glide along the curve.

5. Stadium Skatepark


Mini ramp set with unique obstacles


skateparks in singapore-stadium skatepark overview

Situated near Gate 14 of the Singapore Sports Hub, Stadium Skatepark has plenty of obstacles for both beginner and intermediate skaters. While it doesn’t offer anything extreme like the tall ramps at Xtreme Skatepark and Somerset Skatepark, it does have a mini ramp set up along with a fun box and several low rails.

skateparks in singapore-stadium skatepark unique obstacles

As a bonus, you’ll find unique obstacles such as stairs on the sides of the funbox where you can get creative with your tricks.

skateparks in singapore-stadium skatepark ramp

If you miss skating the old mini ramp at Somerset before its removal, head over to Stadium Skatepark. It’s not too steep which makes it a great starting point to train your pumps while going fakie – or backwards.

Moreover, the location of Stadium Skatepark provides a great alternative if it happens to rain – you can seek shelter in the covered indoor track just a few steps away. Lights outs are at 10pm sharp, so it’s best not to stay too late.

6. ITE College Central Skatepark


Known for high-quality smooth ramps


skateparks in singapore-ITE College Central Skatepark overview

Yes, ITE College Central Skatepark is open to the public. Though the park may occasionally be used for school events and activities, you can make the most of your trip at one of the many eateries or even the Sheng Siong supermarket within the campus while waiting for things to open up.

The park is located in a cool, shaded area and includes a mini ramp, fun box, and pyramids as its main obstacles. The ramps are also incredibly smooth, smoother than the ones at Stadium Skatepark, which makes rolling a breeze.

There’s a flat rail (foreground) and two benches (background) to grind.

Tempting as it might be, skating on benches is usually frowned upon, but ITE College Central is one of the few skateparks to feature benches meant for both sitting and skating on. Plus, there’s a relatively unobstructed flat rail so you’ve got plenty of space to gather momentum and nail the landing without worrying about collisions.

Opening hours: 24 hours, Daily

Find me a person who likes wiping out on a skate trick – I’ll wait. For the rest of us, our butts will be protected as we manoeuver a ramp jump at United Skates – Singapore’s only foam launch. Once you gain speed and momentum via their 9ft-long ramp, launch yourself straight into the foam pit to cushion your fall.

Easties, ha, beat this. The largest outdoor skatepark in Singapore has arrived in Jurong. Skatepark @ Lakeside Garden spans 1,700sqm, which is the equivalent of 2 football fields. Size shouldn’t matter but this skatepark is so big, it also features a bouldering wall and parkour park.

Skateboarders might appreciate the architecture and landscape of this place. 180 skaters, cyclists, and parkourers were consulted and involved in the design of the skatepark. So expect an undulating topography ideal for any kind of wheeling activity.

9. Tampines Skatepark


Beginner-friendly spine


skateparks in singapore-tampines skatepark overview

Right next to Tampines MRT and just a stroll away from three malls, Tampines skatepark is a blessing for skaters in the east. While small, it offers the essentials: a flat ramp, grind box, flat rail and a facing quarter-pipe.

The best feature of Tampines Skatepark is the spine which is much smaller and gentler than the one at Bishan, making it perfect for beginners learning to catch some air time on spines.

There are also a couple of cones brought in by local skaters so you can use them as additional obstacles to jump over.

Higher ledge to practice tricks

Also known as Eunos Harmony Hub Skatepark, Eunos Petal Garden Skatepark is a decent-sized park with a smattering of street obstacles and a mini ramp. It offers a wide box in the centre so you can practice your ollies and manuals on it.

The highlight of the skatepark is the waist-level ledge which is probably the tallest you can find in Singapore’s skateparks. It has a decent length of about three metres and a smooth flat top that can be waxed for grinds.

Opening hours: 24 hours, Daily


11. Buangkok Skatepark


Small & less-crowded skate park

Surrounded by other community fitness areas, Buangkok Skatepark is a few minutes away from a nearby bus stop and the Buangkok Crescent plaza. Although it’s the most accessible skatepark for those living in the north, beginners might have to be extra careful due to its rough concrete flooring and cracks in the ground.

That said, if you’re well-padded and willing to ignore its cons, it is a small, quiet skatepark with plenty of ramps and a small grind box in the middle.

It’s also the skatepark where I’ve personally trained my drop-ins on a skateboard with the help of a couple of strangers. It’s a quaint little skatepark that gives off some homely vibes despite its poor maintenance.

Hougang Skatepark is a small, colourful park that doesn’t have anything too fancy. Its main feature is a structure in the centre with gently curved ramps. Surrounded by a generous flat area, this makes it perfect for beginners to build confidence and speed on inclined surfaces.

For many living in the west or studying at NTU, Jurong West Skatepark is a secret skating haven perfect for a spin after a long day of work or study. A stone’s throw away from NTU, you’ll find this skatepark at the bend of a road behind some bushes and trees.

Guide to skateparks in Singapore

skateparks in singapore-people skating

Before heading to a skatepark, it is important to get up to speed with basic skatepark etiquette. As an open area with people moving at high speeds while doing stunts, it is imperative to look out for yourself and others to avoid freak accidents.

If you’re a parent, taking your kids to the skatepark can be very dangerous – it is not your regular children’s playground. So do keep an eye out for them at all times and educate them about skatepark etiquette as well.

In general, here are some skatepark Dos and Don’ts to follow:

Do:

  • Look out for other riders who may be moving into your planned path
  • Wave or shout to notify other riders before you drop-in on ramps
  • Queue up for obstacles if the skatepark gets crowded.

Don’t:

  • Hog obstacles, even if you’re trying to nail a particular stunt.
  • Block common paths, especially at the centre of a skatepark.
  • Litter. Not only is this against the law, but small items like plastic bottles and caps can also pose a hazard to skaters.

Whether you’re a frequent skater or finding your feet in this adrenaline-filled sport, this guide to the best skateparks in Singapore will help you find the perfect spot to hone every stunt and manoeuvre on your to-do list.

When you’re done skating for the day, try something new:
