The Austin Parks and Recreation Department currently operates two skate parks - one in Mabel Davis District Park and the AustinBMX and Skate Park at 1213 Shoal Creek Boulevard next to Austin Recreation Center.
Mabel Davis District Park - Skate Park
Austin's first skate park is located in Mabel Davis District Park at 3427 Parker Lane. The skate park includes a skate bowl, streetscape elements and a grass seating area for interested onlookers. It opened in late-2005 and is a 12,000-square-feet concrete skate park.
Austin BMX and Skate Park opened at 1213 Shoal Creek Boulevard on June 16, 2011. This 30,000-square-feet facility features a skate bowl, large plaza with streetscape elements, shade structures, unisex restroom and skateable public art piece. This project was funded by the 2006 bond election and designed by New Line Skateparks out of British Columbia, Canada.
