If you’re a skater and looking for local skate parks or skate spots then I might have some for you.

Gilbert Lindsay Skate Park 

First of all there’s Gilbert skate park many people come to this skate park because of its amazing skate ledges and

rails. At the park there is also stairs and a couple of pyramids to do some tricks on. In my opinion this is the best local skate park which I go to often. It’s a close skate park and a good place to learn new tricks because of its many skate spots in the park. Many people are often at the park and support you at times when you try something hard. Many pros such as Theotis Beasley and Tony Hawk have come to this skate park to skate. Events such as one recent one held by Zumiez called the Best Foot Foward, are held at the skate park for skaters to show off what they have. This is why Gilbert Lindsay skate park is my favorite.

 

 

Jazz Skate Stage

One other good local skate park is at Jazz park. It’s not really a skate park but many skaters use the stage to skate on an ollie off. This is a really good skate park to do only flat ground tricks since there isn’t any rails or ramps to skate. But, you are able to learn how to ollie off you can do tricks off the

stairs and the edges around the stage. At Jazz you are able to go with friends and play them “Skate” or people there to see how good you are and try to improve. It’s a really good skate spot and not really crowded so if you want a good place to skate with not many distractions and you can be alone then Jazz is the spot for you.

 

 

 

Bethune Skate Park

Then we have another skate park that is kind of far away but still able to skate to. The park is Bethune Skate park it is very little and I personally don’t really like it but it does have some good half pipes to skate on.Other

than the half pipe there are also a couple of quarter pipes a pyramid and another pyramid with a raid to grind on.Some skaters do go and they do amazing things there.its a good skate park if you like ramps but if you like street skating this park isn’t really for you since only  one rail is there.The only bad thing about the skate park is that because when it packed you can’t really skate since it is so crowded.But overall the park is good.

Ted Watkins Skate Park

Finally there’s Ted Watkins skate park in 103 street and central. This skate park is kind of far away but it is still a good skate park to go to. Here you have two quater pipes on each side to help you get some speed to ollie off or grind the stairs with a rail in the middle. The park also includes a box to grind on and little ramps. There’s a lot of space but doesn’t really have much skateable items to do tricks on but other than that the park is good there is a lot of space and one you are able to drop in from the quater pipes you are able to accomplish much more at the park.

So I recommend that if you are a skater and looking for some good skate spots you should try these out..
