A Guide to skateparks in Hong Kong
#1 Tseung Kwan O Skatepark
This is easily the crème de la crème of the city’s skateparks. It was overseen by Convic, who’ve built over 700 of the best skate facilities in the world. There is plenty of variety here – a whole assortment of smoothly curved ramps, ledges and rails. There are also drinking fountains, changing facilities with showers, plus floodlights and a first aid room. It sits in a landscaped park with plenty of verdant grass to rest on after the session too. Definitely one of the top skateparks in Hong Kong.
Opening Hours: 8am -10pm, daily

This one earns points for staying open the latest – the lights go out at 11pm so you can have a productive session after the sun goes down. However, it loses points for being so damn far way (it’s basically in China) so unless you live on the east rail line of the MTR it’s well out of the way. Nevertheless, it’s worth the journey – this $51-million park has three sets of smooth bowls plus rails and ledges. There are also drinking fountains, floodlights and a first aid room.
Opening Hours: 9am -11pm, daily

#3 Diamond Hill (Po Kong Village Road)
This is a world-class park which features a perfect replica of Sydney’s world-famous Bondi skate bowl. The park has been designed to facilitate professional and international competitions, with facilities provided for beginners and intermediate skaters. The security is quite tight here, so you need to bring protective gear. There are ramps of various sizes, plus a few rails and ledges. There is a drinking fountain, changing rooms and floodlights too, making it one of the top skateparks in Hong Kong.
Opening Hours: 10am -10:30pm, daily

#4 Mei Foo / Lai Chi Kok Park
Mei Foo is a classic – one of the longest standing skateparks in Hong Kong divided into three sections for beginners, intermediates, and experts. While there is not much flow to the park, it’s good for learning. There are quarter pipes, mini ramps and a small street section. There is a drinking fountain, changing rooms and floodlights too.
Opening Hours: 7am -10:00pm, daily

#5 8FIVE2SHOP/Vans Sk85IVE2
Despite the weird acronyms, this place is 3,000 square metres of indoor awesomeness. Also known as the Kwun Tong Country Club, it’s been built in a former Kwun Tong factory space, and there are wooden ramps, rails, ledges and a retail area. Mainly skateboarders only.
Opening Hours: Mon to Fri: 11:00am – 8:00pm, Sat & Sun: 11:00am – 6:00pm

This is the only park you need to pay to get into – it’s a skatepark within an adventure complex, so you’ll be expected to wear pads (provided), and they also offer some scooters and boards for learners too, making it a great choice for thrill seekers of all ages.
Opening Hours: 10am–9pm, daily

#7 Morrison Hill
This is the longest standing of all the skateparks in Hong Kong. It’s more like a bike track really, but all are welcome, and we think that’s pretty cool. There are small ramps resembling speed-bumps and also rails and a flat section that’s good for learning, making it a top pick for skateparks in Hong Kong.
Opening Hours: 24/7
