Cooke Park is one of Strathfield’s largest and most popular parks. Cooke Park provides a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities and opportunities for both summer and winter sports. Cooke Park is named after Thomas Cooke, former Mayor of Enfield Council. The west ward of Enfield Council was amalgamated with Strathfield Council in 1949. Reference: Jones, C, Parks, Reserves & Memorials of Strathfield (2002).
The Cooke Park Skate Park features a small open bowl with a flat bank, hips and pyramid with block, with elements suitable for BMXs, scooters and rollerblades. The concrete park offers a variety of elements to challenge different skill levels, yet its simple design is suitable for beginners.
These sports involve inherent risks of serious injury and use of the Cooke Park skate park is hazardous. Users should take normal safety precautions within the park including wearing a helmet and ankle, knee, wrist and elbow padding and ensuring that friends or responsible adults are present to assist if help is required.
