Guy skateboarding at a skate park

Spread throughout the five boroughs, all of our skate parks offer an opportunity for individuals to perfect their skills on inline skates, skateboards, and bikes.

All hours are subject to change due to inclement weather. Unless otherwise specified, the Department of Parks & Recreation will provide an attendant during official operating hours. Each participant will be required to sign a waiver (those under 18 will need their guardian's signature) before being allowed to use the facility.
