Riverside Skatepark

Riverside Skatepark is in Riverside Park, one of the oldest parks on the west side of the river in Cedar Rapids. The new Riverside Skatepark officially opened August 23, 2024. It replaced the skatepark, installed in 1999, that consisted mostly of steel-framed obstacles and a few concrete obstacles. The old skatepark was removed to make room for a large detention basin that is a component of the flood control system on the west side of the Cedar River.

Skatepark Features
The new skatepark provides more efficient use of space and better flow, with concrete obstacles that meet optimal industry standards. Obstacles include a quarter pipe, radius wedge, euro gap, kicker, radius launch, stairs, flat grind rail, raked grind rails, cantilevered manual pad, grind out ledge, raked panned grind ledge, double raked panned grind ledge, panned grind ledge, panned grind out ledges, and slappy curb.

Skatepark Hours
Riverside Skatepark opens at 6 a.m. and has lights for skating until 10 p.m. It is open and lights are available year-round as weather conditions allow.
