Previously an area reserved only for BMX (Bicycle Motocross) bikers; the Po Kong Village Road Skatepark is now open for passionate skaters too. Featuring a similar replica of Sydney’s famed Bondi skate bowl, ramps of different gradients, plus several half-pipes and ledges, this world-class skatepark has a little something for every skater, whether you’re a beginner or a pro. Along with various park facilities such as floodlights and changing rooms, this concrete wonderland is hands down one of Hong Kong’s top skateparks.
Skateboarding finally made its Olympics debut in Tokyo, and with countries like Japan, Australia, Brazil, UK, and the States all claiming medals in the inaugural event, it's safe to say that skateboarding is no longer just an underground leisure activity.
While it’s no secret that the SAR is a concrete jungle starving for space, there is actually a surprising number of great skateparks hidden within local neighbourhoods. So, whether you are looking for a decent half-pipe to practice your ollie or a cool hangout to land a new trick, read on and check out some of the best skating grounds in town. By Natalie Lam
