The Downtown skateboard plaza is near the southeast corner of Andy Livingstone Park, between Quebec and Union Streets under the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts.


This street-style skateboard park, opened in 2004 and recently upgraded in 2011, is a popular destination for advanced skateboarders. 

The covered 2,000 m² (21,500 ft²) site features:

  • Replica rails
  • Embankments
  • Curbs
  • Walls
  • Ramps
  • Steps

The plaza has a variety of surface textures such as exposed aggregate, brick, concrete, granite, and steel.

During the summer months, a skate host is available three to four mornings or afternoons per week to help with minor maintenance, skate park etiquette, and first aid.

Skateboard strategy for Vancouver

In 2005, the Vancouver Park Board approved the Skateboard Strategy. This document discusses the current situation, requirements, and criteria for selecting skateboard park locations and designs that meet the needs of skateboarders, other park users, and residents living near the facilities. The Skateboard Strategy will guide decisions until 2015.
