Bay Skate Spaces

The three Bay Skate zones are a rink, a wooden ramp area and the all-new concrete bowl area, a world-class professionally designed and built series of concrete plaza-street-style configurations.

You call it, we'll name it

So for now that's what they're called: the rink, the ramps and the bowls. However, over time we expect these three core areas of the park will get nicknamed so feel free to send in your suggestions or talk to one of our staff about your ideas. Overlooking the rink is the original Marineland 593-seat retro grandstand, an iconic structure built in the 60s. And, adjacent to the park is the Lick This ice cream parlour.

The Rink

Bay Skate's rink is smack bang in the middle of the park, right in front of the 593-seat grandstand. The rink caters for for roller derby, inline hockey, roller hockey, speed skating, and artistic skating.

The Ramps

Currently under construction, the ramps will be built in the near future with the aim of making a world-class compeition park.

The Bowls

The third space at Bay Skate is the concrete bowl and plaza area. Designed and sculpted by professional street skate environment pros, the bowls are a matrix of curved and straight hard concrete channels for roller riding.

The Grandstand

Bay Skate's grandstand is the refurbished Marineland grandstand. Built in the 60s, it can seat 593 people and it overlooks the rink immediately in front and the ramps and bowls either side. The stand and its internal areas can be used for functions.
