Norwalk Park Skatepark

This skatepark is the biggest in the area! It combines a smooth concrete floor with wooden obstacles. These obstacles are fit for all skill-levels! Beginners can start on the smaller ramps in the corner. More advanced skaters can flow through this park with ease. Everything is lined-up perfectly. You can use the speed from the ramp on the banks. Push your limits and try out some creative lines! There is a 6-stair in the middle. Connect this with the ledge and you are guaranteed a sick trick! The possibilities are endless. Recently, the City Council announced a complete renovation. The skatepark will be moved to an even better location. Until then, make sure to explore the concrete while you still can ;).

These are perfect for tricks in between your ride! If you go all the way up north you’ll find some cool spots. At the back of Nettie Waite Middle School is a nice stair-set. You easily can spot this white platform. It is a 4-stair with steel rails. This can be a challenging spot for most people! It is quite steep and slick. Make sure to gear up before grinding down here. Don’t know what to wear? Check out this blog for skating essentials. When you’re done exploring this 4-stair, go just around the corner! There you’ll find some yellow ledges.
