Skateboarding Fact

Before the ramps and bowls, most skateboarders practice their tricks on empty swimming pools and and draining ditches. However, these are not-so-safe places, therefore, skateboarding enthusiasts have come up with well-designed obstacles that will deliver the thrill and excitement skateboarders are looking forward to.

Why Boston Is Great For Skateboarding

Boston has always been known for having a great selection of places to skate. It has never been known for it’s skateparks nor it’s weather. However, the cityscapes around Boston’s financial district and Prudential/Copley Square area provide a plethora of different options. Boston is one of the few cities where skateboarding can be one of the most efficient means of transportation.

For skateparks, Boston boasts the Hype Park Skatepark and the Charles River Skatepark. Hype Park has long been known as one of Boston’s best parks, but due to the neighborhood, it is mostly frequented only by the most serious skaters. It can be a fine park for beginners. We recommend that parents do not leave their kids unattended here.
