Skate Park

Newton Skate Park closed for redevelopment

Improvements to the District’s skate park at Newton Park are underway. A professional skate park design consultant was engaged for the skate park design. A public meeting was held on April 21st at Spring Avenue Recreation Center. A large group of very engaged users attended and provided constructive feedback. A revised concept was placed on order June 22. Demolition was completed in late August, followed by crack protection, asphalt and new color coating. This color coating needs high temperature to be applied and had to be done in the month of September before equipment delivery. The skate ramps are coming in mid-December and are expected to take only a few weeks to install. The skate park is closed while these improvements take place. For more information, please contact Nathan Troia at ntroia@gepark.org or visit gepark.org/projects.


Well-suited for novice to advanced skaters, our skate park is completely free to use. Ramps, platforms and obstacles make practicing tricks fun and easy. Though unsupervised, helmets are mandatory in the skate park. The park is open weather permitting. Please check the Park District hotline for the current status.
