According to the Department of Health, playgrounds, skateparks and outdoor gyms across Victoria can reopen from October 20. You must still maintain 1.5 metres from others and not gather in groups larger than ten people from a maximum of two households. You can only travel to these parks if they are in your 25km bubble. Check with the relevant council if you're uncertain whether a skatepark is open.
