indy area skate parks indianapolis with kids

Many years ago I used to watch my younger brother grind curbs and jump picnic tables, as he sought inline skating thrills.  Luckily, the greater Indianapolis area now offers many skateparks that would certainly entertain any skating enthusiast!  I’m happy to report that all of these area skateparks are FREE, so pack up your helmet, pads, and skates and check out the many options for inline skaters and skateboarders.
