The city of Hyères is located on the Mediterranean coast, in the Var department, equidistant between Marseille and Nice and their aiports. A lot of transport infrastructures guarantee a privilegied access to the skatepark: a nearby international airport, a motorway axis that crosses the city and a train station less than 5km away. This existing concrete equipment was built in 1999 and had a first phase of renovation in June 2009.The infrastructure is currently being redeveloped : the works consist of a renovation of the entire street area as well as an extension on the western side (2511m2 in total), but also the creation of a double-deep bowl with an area of 272m2. Thus, you will be able to find within the street area all the equipment of an international technical level, allowing a safe practice. At the same time, the planting of Mediterranean trees enhances the quality of the landscape all around the sports equipment. The entire site will be operational during the first quarter of 2022.
Nearby the skatepark, you will find:
