Sail Yards skate park, Melbourne CBD
I moved to Melbourne at the beginning of 2001, and I used to walk around the city a lot both day and night. I remember a skate park on the corner of Swanston St and Lonsdale St which I walked past most days and Friday nights after I finished work in Bourke St Mall. Sometimes I’d stop and watch the skaters through the fence for a little while. I remember a lot of sketchy people hanging out there, but also a lot of kids who just wanted to skate.
I didn’t take any photos during my first year in Melbourne – one of my big regrets, as so many things look completely different to the way they do now.
Sail Yards skate park was closed a few months after I moved to Melbourne and QV now stands in it’s place.
If anyone with stories and/or photos of Sail Yards would be keen to share, please do!
