With a skating surface of 14,500 square feet, there's something for everyone no matter your skating ability. The diverse terrain at Providence offers options for all skill levels.

Features unique to Providence Skate Park include:

  • Quarter pipes
  • Hand rail
  • Pyramid
  • Step-up
  • Varied granite structures

And, the jewel in this granite park is a 9.5-foot peanut-shaped bowl.
