A few weeks ago, we shared a clip about roller skating on our Instagram. So we figured… Hey, why not do a feature on skate parks in Phoenix? So here you go! Whether you’re looking for a supportive community, or want to slowly learn on your own, we have compiled a list of the best skate parks near you. It’s time to go outside!

Paradise Valley is the holy ground for skaters new or veteran in Phoenix. It’s by far the best park around. Paradise Valley is spacey with ramps and bowls for skaters of different levels. Since the space is large enough, Paradise Valley almost always has vacant areas for those who are still just practicing to get their way around.
6602 W Encanto Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 85035
Desert West is one of the best street parks in Phoenix. It’s got a super diverse community. The coolest part is the skate park is filled with awesome murals and street doodles. Also, if you’re looking for somewhere kids friendly, you need to check out Desert West as well!
17010 S 48th St, Phoenix, AZ 85048
This is another kid-friendly skate park. It’s also spacey enough for those of you who want to produce some cool skating videos! Not too far away from Pecos, you will find a playground and a small splash pad, which makes summer outings all the more fun!
2030 E Southern Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85040
Hermoso is a little smaller compared to the other skate parks in Phoenix, but it’s definitely well-equipped. Plenty of lights if you’re a night skater, and since it’s a neighborhood park, there is zero concern about safety issues. It’s surrounded by nature, so many even go there for picnics and family outings. Did we mention there is also a public swimming pool?
8401 S Hardy Dr, Tempe, AZ 85284
Our last one on the list is just too good to be excluded simply because of the location! Tempe Skatepark is many skaters’ second home. There is plenty of space for everything from bikes, skateboards, rollerblades, to scooters. The community is friendly and respectful, so you will never feel left out because of your skill level.
