Night Sessions

Every Wednesday and Friday night the skate park is lit under flood lights until 10.30pm (Weather permitting). On the last Friday of every month we also put on the #lastfridayofthemonth Night Session.

It's all about bringing people together to have fun! The YMCA cook up a free BBQ for all the Rivers locals and run various jams and mini comps throughout the night, prizes are awarded for rad tricks, progression, style and positive vibes! Supported by VANS Australia there is always heaps of rad prizes and giveaways!


The facility is staffed all year round and the onsite skate shop and café has all you need to keep you rolling and a nice place to chill and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.


Riverslide Skate Park is owned by City of Melbourne and managed by YMCA Victoria. We work with a number of community, sports and government bodies to offer opportunities for all our participants. YMCA is the leader in community and recreation facility management. We aim to provide the best in community care and services.
