Our free time is ideally used to work on our hobbies. It can be fishing or playing an instrument, we're not here to judge. If somehow you find yourself picking up the hobby of skateboarding – well lucky you. Years ago it wouldn't even be legal to be skateboarding in Singapore. Thankfully, skating on the streets these days is fine (if you're not a nuisance) and we also have designated spaces for nailing some cool tricks – or if you are starting out in the sport yourself.

  • Things to do
  • Jurong East

Skaters, get stoked – there's a new skate complex opening soon. Set to complete later this year, the northern strip of Lakeside Garden will feature a youth park with skating and recreational facilities such as a climbing frame, catering for different age groups and ability levels. And it's not like any of the other concrete playgrounds – this one is set amidst a re-created wetland. Gnarly!

  • Attractions
  • Beaches
  • Marine Parade

If you want to channel your inner Tony Hawk by the sea, then Xtreme SkatePark will suit you well. This all-inclusive, 1.4-hectare skate park is designed to fit into the beach setting and has areas for both novices and pros. It's decked with a combo bowl, a vertical bowl, and a street course featuring a mix of obstacles for skaters to nail their flips, grinds, and other gravity-defying tricks. Not only for skater boys (and girls), the park also welcomes BMX enthusiasts and their two-wheelers.

  • Things to do
  • Orchard

Right in the heart of Orchard Road is a concrete refuge for skaters. The 3000-square-metre concrete playground is conveniently located opposite Somerset 313 (especially if you need a refuel) and is highly accessible from the main road. It comes complete with ramps for beginners and a graffiti wall for local artists to showcase their work. There are also various funboxes that feature obstacles including rails, ledges and ramps. Weekends can get busy with youth and children coming down for classes.

  • Sport and fitness
  • Kallang

In the wide range of sports that you can partake at the Singapore Sports Hub, skateboarding might just be one of the cooler ones. Located near Gate 14 of the National Stadium, the skatepark allows you to get acquainted with the basics, thanks to its mini ramp that's set up along with a fun box and several low rails. And if you want a challenge, take it to the quarter mini pipe.

  • Tampines

A stone's throw away from Tampines MRT is this decent size space for skaters to flex their mad skills, and beginners to get the hang of balancing on the board. It's got all the essentials you need for a casual sesh: a flat ramp, grind box, flat rail and a facing quarter-pipe. The spine here is also smaller and gentler, which is ideal for rookies to catch some air time on spines. And if you need some place to recharge, there are three malls – Tampines Mall, Tampines One, and Century Square – located nearby with plenty of dining options – and aircon.

Buangkok Sports Park
  • Sport and fitness
  • Hougang

In the suburb of Buangkok, this skate park is located within the grounds of Buangkok Sports Park, a community fitness arena for the residents around the area. This skate park is small but has half- and quarter-pipes and rails for riding and practising skate tricks. If you're a beginner, there's a lot of space for you to practice around the park as well.

  • Bishan

Just a short walk from Bishan MRT, Bishan Harmony Park houses a decently sized skate park with all the essentials. There's plenty of flat concrete space perfect for beginners who are taking the board for the first time or more experienced skaters to nail more complex tricks. There is also a large bowl and ramps for the pros to conquer and work on fancier moves.
