Skateboarders and inline skaters will find lots of fun at these locations.

Skateboarding and Skate Parks in the Indianapolis Area

Many years ago I used to watch my younger brother grind curbs and jump picnic tables, as he sought inline skating thrills.  Luckily, many greater Indianapolis parks now offer skateparks that would certainly entertain any skating enthusiast!  I’m happy to report that most Indianapolis skateparks are FREE, so pack up your helmet, pads, and skates and check out the many options for inline skaters and skateboarders. If you’re wondering “Is there a skate park near me?” this list of places to skate should help.

If you are a skater yourself you grab your board and drop in on the nearest quarter pipe with your kids. If you don’t know what that means or are nervous for your kids to start skating, then we have just the place to start. Some of our favorite Indy skate parks have been designed by the Indiana natives at Hunger Skateparks in Bloomington. We’ll add new parks as we visit them.

Skateboarding Indianapolis Lessons

Skateboarding can be a fantastic sport for kids to learn because it requires a ton of patience, dedication, and grit to keep trying even if you fall down and fail. Lessons are offered at The Monon Community Center or Q Skatepark (see below). Both facilities offer classes for beginner and intermediate-level skaters. Youtube videos are also an excellent resource for young skaters as they add tricks to their repertoire.
