Best Skate Park: Lakewood Skate Park

With 9,500 square feet of solid concrete all to themselves, skaters don’t need to worry about getting in anyone’s way at Lakewood Skate Park. The idea for the skate park was nearly 30 years in the making, after area skaters kept finding themselves in trouble with Lakewood police and looking for a place to call their own. Today’s Lakewood Skate Park comes with obstacles designed for all ages and skill levels, and bleachers if you’d rather just watch. The skate park shares the same hours as Lakewood Park, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day, weather permitting.
