Summer Play Programs

Skateboard leaders

Want to work on your Kick Turns, Basic Ollies or Boardslides? Or maybe you’re just starting out with Skateboarding? Each summer, the City hires Skateboard Leaders who travel to the various sites to provide instruction for beginner and intermediate skateboarders. Bring your own deck or use their equipment. It’s free. The program runs July 2nd – August 15th.

Close to us, the Skateboard Leaders come to W.W. Ashley Park (815 Taylor Street, beside Lathey Pool), on FRIDAYS, from 1:30 – 5 pm.

Skateboard parks in the city (these are unsupervised unless a program is running):
