Greenhills Skate Park offers a skateable area of approximately 1600m2. It has a bowl area featuring a large vertical transition, a street zone with stair sets and a snake run area that pays homage to the early days of skateboarding.
The skate park was designed and built by Convic in collaboration with Council, the developers, local skaters and Shire residents.
The areas around the skate park are still under construction as part of the ongoing Greenhills Parklands project. Further works still to be completed on the site include landscaping, amenities, lighting, drinking fountain and shade structures.
Skate park visitors are reminded to adhere to the temporary advisory signage and be mindful when accessing the skate park. Entry to the skate park is via Lindum Road which will take you to the skate facility and adjacent car park. Do not enter the skate park through the construction site.
As there are no additional amenities currently available, users are reminded to take plenty of water and sun protection including hats and sunscreen.
Please help keep the facility clean and safe and report any damage or graffiti to Council.

Riding or walking
You can ride or walk to Greenhills Skate Park from Cronulla on the Wanda Heritage Dunes walking track. The track starts at the end of the car park in Wanda Reserve, Cronulla and goes through the Wanda Heritage Dunes before finishing at the skate park.
The track is 3 km long and steep in parts, so take the correct walking gear. If you are riding, you will need a mountain bike or suitable all-terrain bike and you may have to dismount in some places for your safety.
You are encouraged not to ride or walk along Captain Cook Drive to get to the skate park, but instead use the other transport options.
Frequently asked questions
Why is access being provided under a ‘lease’?
Council has negotiated early access to the Greenhills Skate Park site via a lease arrangement with the landowners ahead of the official transfer of the land to council once the project is fully completed. The early access enables skaters to use facility whilst other surrounding construction is being completed.
What areas are available?
Areas that are available are the skate park and public car park. All other surrounding areas outside the construction fence are off limits to the public as they are still part of the construction zone.
How can the skate park be accessed?
Access to the skate park is via Lindum Road at the roundabout. There is no pedestrian access to the skate park from Captain Cook Drive. Ahead of the construction of the Skate Park, Council completed road works in the area last year installing a new roundabout at Lindum Road, bus stops, pedestrian refuge islands and footpaths.
What are the opening hours?
Interim opening hours are 7.30am to sunset. The gate to the public carpark will be closed and locked at sunset each day.
What security is being provided on site?
Skate Park users need to follow the direction of authorised officers including council Environmental Protection & Regulation Officers.
What other amenities are available at the skate park?
Council has negotiated early access to the site under a lease agreement while the surrounding areas are still under construction. As such there are no amenities on site as they are still being constructed.
What is the plan with the remaining works on site?
Further work still to be completed around the skate park includes landscaping, amenities, lighting, drinking fountain and shade structures. Temporary site closures may be necessary from time to time as required for the remaining construction work. Users of the skaetpark must abide by the temporary closures when in place.
