It's kickflips, ollies and pop-shove-its galore at the new Albury obstacle park.

Skateboarders got to hit the bowl for the first time when the fences came down on Tuesday.

The $3.4m development also features a parkour area and a pump track.

Mayor Kevin Mack said it's especially important post-Covid.

"It’s one of those moments where a piece of infrastructure is able to become a social interaction," he said.

"I think that's really important part about it. It gives people reason to be out in the fresh air, and reason to be together"

The new David Street hub offers a 3.6-metre-deep skate bowl for boarders, BMX riders, scooter users and basketballers.
