Learn to skate

Skatepark welcomes youth of all ages and experience levels. Whether you’ve never been on a board before, or you can already do tricks, there’s a place for you and something to learn.

Make new friends

Skateboarding is a social sport! Come hang out and meet some new friends to cheer you on while you skate. We have a strict no-bullying policy and maintain a supportive environment.

Skateboarding can teach people discipline, patience, and resiliency. It’s a great sport for kids with a lot of energy! We’ll help build up some structure and support in your life, all while you meet new people and have a ton of fun learning how to skateboard.
