The story of Nimbin Sk8 Park
It was a long journey with a fair few hiccups along the way, but finally, after many years of hard work and committment from the Nimbin Community Centre and Lismore Council in particular, the fabulous Nimbin Sk8 park was opened on 11 August 2011, by Federal MP for Richmond, Justine Elliot, Lismore Mayor Jenny Dowell, Connor and Aunty Viv Laurie.
A year later Nimbinites celebrated the 1st birthday of the Sk8 Park.
The Nimbin Sk8 Park is unique in that it is located in the heart of the village and has become a central focus of activities for families and kids (and even 'old' skaters!) in the community. The Sk8 park is maintained by community members and the park users, and in particular by Neil. The philosophy of Nimbin Sk8 Park is a safe space for all kids no matter their age or Sk8 ability and all visitors are made very welcome and included by the local Sk8ters.
The Nimbin Sk8 Park is a drug and alcohol free zone.
