Prahran Skate Park engagement is now complete
Engagement on the redevelopment of the Prahran Skate Park and basketball courts began in September 2020 and through a series of community and stakeholder engagement programs a community-led design was finalised in late-2022.
The announcement of the final design in October 2022 brings to a close the community engagement on the Prahran skate park and basketball court.
The next and final phase of this project is the construction, which will take place in 2023.

Prahran Skate Park final design has landed
We listened to your feedback and have designed a skate park you'll love.
Earlier this year we asked for feedback on a draft design to revamp Prahran skate park and basketball court. The draft was developed from feedback we received in 2020, when we asked the community what they liked about the skate park and what we could do to make it even better.
What we heard was that locals and skateboarders generally loved what they saw but wanted a full-size vert ramp and a mini ramp, plus a few changes to skate park obstacles.
We listened and changed the design so the existing vert ramp could be relocated within the park. We also improved other elements of the park and added in a mini vert ramp.
What we have now is a final skate park and basketball court design you’ll love!
How your feedback influenced change
What were heard from the community influenced some fairly significant changes to the draft design, most notably retaining the existing large vert ramp by relocating it within the park and building a new small vert ramp.
Thank you and stay in touch
Thanks to everyone who shared their ideas and feedback, and helped create a design that’s contemporary, challenging and fun!
