Skating is a popular activity in the City of Melbourne, with hundreds of local and visiting skaters using the city’s skate parks and other public spaces each week. The City of Melbourne recognises that skating is a legitimate physical activity that provides health, social and other benefits for many people. Young people (those under 25 years of age) make up more than one third of the municipality’s resident population and skating is an activity that is particularly popular in this demographic. Skating is also an accessible and inclusive activity with potential for active participants from a range of demographics and backgrounds.
