Hong Kong is dotted with outdoor spaces where people can go hiking or biking. But there are also loads of places in the city where you can take a skateboard and work on your tricks. Here’s a list of skateparks you can visit across the 852, irrespective of your skill level.

Hong Kong Velodrome Park Tseung Kwan O

This is the go-to park in the city as it was overseen by Convic, which specialises in skatepark design. While its sand-covered concrete is reminiscent of Bondi Skate Park, its features include smoothly curved half pipes and bowls for beginners, as well as ramps and ledges for more skilled skateboarders. The park is also outfitted with changing facilities with showers, drinking fountains, floodlights, and a first-aid room.

Fanling Skatepark Fanling

While this skating venue may lose points for being quite out of the way, it makes up for it by being open till 11 pm (and yes, there are floodlights). It’s popular among those in the know for its smooth concrete ground. Practise your tricks on the various rails, ledges, and three sets of bowls here.
