BEST SKATEPARKS IN ONTARIO

Best Skate Parks in Ontario

A big thanks to our Loco Sports Rider AJ Struthman for putting together a solid guide to the best skateparks in Ontario.  Check out AJ's shredding videos here : http://www.locosports.tv/users/ajstruthmann

There are many skate parks in Ontario Canada that range in all skill levels for riders.  A lot of parks aren’t huge compared to most of the parks in the United States, Europe and Australia, but we do have our fair share of nice ones that could cause riders to turn green with envy. The trip between these skateparks is usually a fair distance, making it hard to go to more than one of your favourites in a day. 

Living in Toronto, Ontario for college has let me experience a lot of skateparks around the area. Some of my favorite Canadian parks are both indoor and outdoor but due to the extreme cold  & snow in winter we don’t have the leisure of riding outside year round.

In Ontario there are outdoor & indoor skate park’s I recommend to visit if you are planning a visit to the great white North!

Woodstock skatepark – Parkinson Road/Southside Park, Woodstock, Ontario.

Woodstock skatepark is a beautiful skatepark, well poured concrete making the park smooth and versatile to any type of rider!

On the park side it features 3-quarter pipes, spine, curved wall, roll in, pyramid, step up, fly out and an up rail. This uniquely designed park is very fun and well worth the visit!
