Skating is a popular past time for many young people in the Shire of Mundaring; so much so that in response the Shire has built three Skate Parks in the area. Skate Parks in the Shire of Mundaring are located in:
DARLINGTON: Pine Terrace, Darlington
The Darlington Skate Park was completed in early 2002 and has proved to be a great attraction for young people from across the Shire. It consists of flat banks, a big fun box with hips on the side and a rail down the middle, smooth 4ft quarter and a small hip.
MUNDARING: Hartung Street, Mundaring
Mundaring Skate Park was completed in 2004. It is situated on the west side of the Harry Riseborough Oval.
MOUNT HELENA: Grahame Street, Mt Helena
The Mount Helena Skate Park was completed in 2004. It is situated on the west side of Elsie Austin Reserve.
The Skate Parks have been built in consultation with young people. Meetings were held and information displayed in school libraries asking for comments. This information was then sent to the Skate Park design company and incorporated in the final design where possible.
We welcome your feedback on the Skate Parks. If you would like more information please contact:

THE GOAT FARM
MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK
The Goat Farm is located on Department of Environment and Conservation managed land in Greenmount and is the only purpose built mountain bike park in Western Australia. It has several downhill tracks and is a great place to improve your mountain bike skills. There are toilets, drinking water and car parking. Entry is free and access is from the end of Greenmount Rise (off Great Eastern Highway, Greenmount).
MOUNTAIN BIKE TRACK
The Forsyth's Mill historical site contains a shining example of a well-maintained, DEC-approved single track mountain bike trail. Whilst it doesn't offer a lot in terms of elevation change, the trail can be ridden fast and hard and will still provide great wearying enjoyment for pro and beginner alike. It offers the odd berm, drop, sweeping singletrack, rhythm sections, bucket loads of WA's finest pea gravel, and also boasts Perth's first legitimate shore-style feature.
The Forsyth's Mill trailhead is located by the corner of Great Eastern Highway and Gorry (also spelt Gorrie) Road past Sawyers Valley - about 1km on the right past the Lake Leschenaultia turn off. It's roughly 45km from the centre of Perth.
