Contracted by the City Of Rockingham, Skate Sculpture worked in collaboration with Emerge Associates to replace the old Port Kennedy skatepark with new state-of-the-art facilities. Skate Sculpture provided the initial concept design, detailed design and cost estimation for a skatepark that could facilitate high level competitions, demonstrations and events in addition to its constant use by the local community.
Thus, we designed a park with huge diversity and application for all riding styles and skill levels. The design creates a multitude of applications, incorporating a street plaza section partially connected to an organic flow zone, an enclosed bowl for transition riding, two shaded areas for congregation, and a half court basketball court.

Port Kennedy Sunrise Sessions – Featuring Josh McMurray
Skateboarder Josh McMurray woke up bright and early to beat first light at Port Kennedy Skatepark for a trilogy of sunrise skate sessions with the Skate Sculpture film crew.
From his bowl transfers, kick-flip nosegrind and cab back lip just to name a few, this part is full of heavy tricks, showcasing Josh’s insane ability and Port Kennedy’s capacity to host a skater as skilled and diverse as Josh.
The video was released through Slam Skateboarding Magazine, Australia’s premiere skateboarding publication. For more information visit: https://www.slamskateboarding.com/item/4750-josh-mcmurray-port-kennedy-sunrise-sesh-video.
