Skatepark FAQS

The skatepark is monitored, but parents should not assume that their kids will be supervised. The park staff can assist with questions and provide help as needed and can be found in the park skate shop near the entrance of the building.

It’s also worth noting that the opening hours are usually less crowded and allow for beginners to better focus on practicing their skating skills. There is a even a spectator area within the park for parents and friends to watch from.

Most importantly, have fun, know your limits, and be safe out there. Click here to view the participant agreement, release, and assumption of risk.
