Today there are more skate parks in the world than you or I could possibly remember.
That being said, that’s fine when you’re wanting to talk about the most iconic skate parks in the world. We’re all going to know some of these =]
Venice Beach Skate Park
Location: Venice Beach, California, USA
It’s one of the most well known skateparks in the world, and it sits in one of the most iconic locations in all of California.
Add to that the fact that Skateboarding was invented in California and the parks fame grows further. Some of the best skaters in the world have skated there, and continue to do so.
Location: Liverpool, England, United Kingdom
If you ever find yourself in the UK, then Rampworx is a skate park that you might well want to check out. One of the biggest indoor skateparks at 70,000 square feet, and an additional backroom which is 15,000 square feet, it’s a place where you can skate for hours and hours.
It’s also not going to be nearly as busy as many of the other parks on this list, and for that reason you absolutely can’t miss it.
Location: Portland, Oregon, USA
If you haven’t heard of Burnside then I’ll admit I’d be surprised. One of the most gloriously constructed skateparks from the early 90s (1990 to be exact) it’s collectively burned into the minds of the culture of skateboarding. Featuring in games like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and countless magazines and skateboarding videos around the world. It’s not to be missed.
Kona Skate Park
Location: Jacksonville, Florida, USA
You’d be forgiven for thinking all of the best skateparks in the US are on the West Coast. Well, Kona is easily one of the coolest looking skateparks in the whole world, and if you don’t believe me ask anyone who has been.
What’s more is that it has to be on this list, it’s the world’s oldest operating skate park having been here since 1977 and to this day it attracts skaters from all over the world.
Location: Sunnyvale, California, USA
Alright, it’s not the biggest park and there isn’t the most to do. It’s still an iconic park though, and will probably remain that way for a long time still. Even if you’d argue with me and say it’s not one of THE most iconic in the world, it’s definitely one of the most iconic in California and the West Coast of the US.
There are just too many good parks to name, and this list is obviously a highly-subjective one. I’ll probably update it in the future, or expand it out with the best parks in different countries and states. That said, I think these are some parks almost any skateboarder would want to skate.Home > Skateboarding Blog > 5 Most Iconic Skateparks In The World
