Skate Park

And another great season comes to an end! The Skate Park is now closed for the season. We will reopen the park in the spring as weather permits. See you on the ramps next year!

Located within Newton Park, our community skate park is well-suited for skateboard enthusiasts of all levels and is completely free to use. The 80’ by 160’ area features a variety of ramps, platforms, and obstacles that make practicing tricks fun and easy. The park is open in between mid-May and October from 9 am until dusk, weather permitting. Though unsupervised, helmets are mandatory in the skate park.
