Red Hill Skate Arena is an abandoned skate park in Brisbane, Australia.
Today it remains a burnt-out, ruined shell – reflecting the condition of so many historic structures across the world – we felt that it warranted a more detailed examination, plus a series of atmospheric photographs by urban explorer Darkday.
The abandoned skate park stands at the corner of Musgrave Road and Enoggera Terrace in Red Hill, an inner suburb of Brisbane, in the state of Queensland.
The historic building, which dates back to the 1920s, provided decades of roller-skating fun for local youth, and was still popular when a fire swept through the structure back in 2002.
