Skate Park Programs
The Metro District has two skate parks for boarders, inline skaters and BMX bikers.
Redstone Skate Park is a 22,000 square foot fenced concrete facility located in Redstone Park. Redstone Park is on Town Center Drive one mile south of C-470 and Lucent Boulevard. It features a beginners bowl, street skating and a snake run with 8′ vert bowl. Redstone Skate Park is a non-smoking facility. BMX bicycles without pegs are allowed.
The Tanks Park offers a fun box, a wedge and two quarter pipes. It is located on the northwest corner of South Broadway and Wildcat Preserve Parkway.
Check the bulletin boards at the skate parks for up to date event calendars. Protective equipment including helmet, knee and elbow pads, shoes and wrist guards are strongly recommended.
Learn the basics of skateboarding through this special program called SkateStart Level 1. This is geared toward beginner skateboarders or those who have never tried the sport.
SkateStart Level 1
With the unique SkateStart skateboard provided for use during lessons, you will learn how to push and roll the skateboard through proper technique and foot placement. The Level 1 program is a great skill and confidence booster leading into summer skate camps, where you’ll learn more tricks. Please bring a helmet, athletic shoes (closed-toe), and water. Pads are encouraged.
