Nothing is more exciting than whizzing down the driveway on a skateboard or scooter!
They're not only a great mode of transport for kids, but they also keep them entertained and active outdoors. Skateboarding in particular encourages individuality and is a great way to improve overall body balance, posture and flexibility.
If you're looking for ways to entertain your kids there are seven major skateparks in Canberra suitable for all levels of use, with a further twelve parks offering skate features.
Before they try out a skate park, it's best to teach kids to be sure when it's their turn and that no one is in the way. Collisions can happen if kids are unfamiliar with skatepark etiquette.
If you'd like more information before you venture out with the kids the Canberra Skateboarding Association offers sessions to kids and adults to develop their skateboarding skills.
