For youth who enjoy skateboarding or inline skating, finding a safe but challenging place to practice can be quite difficult, which is exactly why the Cocoa Beach Skateboard Park was developed by the City of Cocoa Beach in cooperation with Low Gravity, Inc. It features a smooth concrete surface with bowls and a cradle, plus a wood half pipe, where skaters and boarders of all levels can get all the action they crave.
Collisions with other skaters, equipment, walls, and other fixed objects are not uncommon at Cocoa Beach Skateboard Park. Falling down, slipping, tripping, and wiping out are all part of the fun. But that does not mean it is dangerous. In fact, safety is of critical importance. Every participant, adults as well as minors, must be documented with a signed liability waiver before using the facility.
Rules at the Cocoa Beach Skateboard Park include no food, drinks, smoking, abusive behavior or foul language in the skate area. Helmets and required safety gear must be worn at all times. Failure to adhere to the rules could result in expulsion from the park, with no refund of fees paid.
The Cocoa Beach Skateboard Park is located behind Roosevelt Elementary and Cocoa Beach High School at 450 Minuteman Causeway, Cocoa Beach, Florida 32931. Lighted for night skating, the park is open from 4pm to 9pm daily. On Saturdays, lessons are offered from 10am and skating from noon. On Sundays, two four-hour sessions start at 1pm. The fee is $3 per session.
