John Lomas Skate Park
The John Lomas Skate Park is located within Moulder Park, on the corner of Anson Street and Warrendine Street. The skate park is a continuous concrete structure with features including bowls, pyramid jump, spine and grind block, box and rails. The facility has been designed for the use of BMX bikes, scooters, in-line skates, roller skates and skateboards.
The Orange Skate Park was the venue for a return to visit to Orange by the crew from the 'Big Air School'. The day was sponsored by Orange City Council as part of the effort to listen to the views of locals about a proposed expansion of skate park facilites in East Orange.

Relocatable skate equipment has also been installed near Anzac Park. Over the next 6 months, it will be moved to a number of sites in East Orange. See the equipment in this clip.
The skate park is named after the Late John Lomas, Orange City Councillor, 1 October 1987 - 9 September 1995 and 20 September 1999 - 4 March 2001.
In 2009 the John Lomas Skate Park received a $150,000 dollar extension which added an additional 370 square metres to the surface area. The extension was designed by Oasis Skate Park Design, following consultation with users of the facility and constructed in December by Michael Haley Precision Parks and Concreting. Funding for the expansion was provided by Orange City Council, with assistance from the Commonwealth Government's Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program.
The extension includes the addition of a Combination 1800mm Mini Bowl with Table Top and Ledges.
