Skate Parks in Seattle Perfect for Skateboarding Lessons
The government of Seattle values the importance and benefits of skateboarding. Skateboarding has been a good medium to keep teens and adults away from any vices such as cigarettes, liquors and drugs. Because of these reasons, the government has never ceased to create well-structured skate parks where enthusiasts may enjoy their hobby. These skateparks were carefully planned, considering points such as noise, safety and cost.
Here are some of the wonderfully created skate parks in Seattle where GOSKATE can do our lessons:
- SeaSk8 – a 10,000 square foot skate park that is being hailed due to its smooth concrete finish with foam underneath, SeaSk8 should really be visited. Although it was thoughtfully planned, it still appears small and narrow, thus, this is perfect for beginner and advanced students.
Location: Queen Anne 305 Harrison St Seattle, WA 98109
- Woodland Skate Park – also known as the “Lower Woodland Park,” this skate park is one of the few preferred locaations but the skateboarders because eof the efficient uses of its concrete finish. It has pyramids, fun boxes, mini ramps and so on where you can really practice those hard flips!
Location: Phinney Ridge Aurora Ave N & N 59th St Seattle, WA 98103
Phone number: (206) 684-4075
- All Together Skate Park – an indoor skate park where kids and adults can learn the appropriate skateboarding tricks, GOSKATE surely loves the location. The skate park opens early for kids and no adults will be allowed during these hours so that those little ones will have their time for themselves.
Location: Fremont 3500 Stone Way N Seattle, WA 98103
