The Apollo Beach Skate Park is shaped like a three-pointed star with an elevated center. Each of the three points has a structure that allows skaters to turn around and keep a constant flow. Its unique shape and landscape allows for endless lines throughout. Any skater can skate around the entire park or simply skate one element at a time. Plenty of areas to stage and gather are also available. The Apollo Beach Skate Park contains various textures, providing for a real street experience.

Entrance will be free through the summer. All skaters must wear helmets, complete a notarized waiver.

  • This 23-acre park is home to the Apollo Beach Recreation Center and the Apollo Beach Skate Park. The recreation center offers teen and special interest programming, a weight room, a dog park and the Apollo Beach Skate Park.
  • The elevated center of the park has a series of street elements including a step up, double set of five stairs, a single five stair set, a dual option handrail/flat bar, a regular handrail, a gapped granite ledge, a very long and mellow ledge that is sided by two different banks, a steeper bank in one end and another very mellow bank on the other. The mellow bank is modeled after a driveway with a long rail that has a low pitch on the opposite end, and a custom quarter pipe that follows the angle of the bank.
  • Another series of real street elements is located on the northeast corner of the Park and include a brick print gap, a bull nose granite rail, a flat round rail over the bank, a bench replica that is set on an angle down the bank, and a ledge that is connected to a structure on the east side of the Skate Park. Once skaters reach the corner, they will find a U-shaped brick stamped 5 foot quarter pipe with pool coping, and two hips on each end. This structure allows skaters to whip around in any direction.
  • On the way to the south end of the Park, skaters will face a banked hip/gap on the east, and an escalating bricked stamped china bank that has hips on each end and the top serves as an angled manual pad. As they approach the south side, skaters will find a few basic elements including a 12' long granite bench, a pole jam, a long flat round bar, and at the end, a 6 foot tall bank with a concave ledge that comes out from the middle of the bank. This element leads skaters to come back up to the center staging area, where a small manual pad, a rock gap with a kicker and a steep ledge comes off the bank.

All of these features are located in a park that boasts color, texture and endless hours of street fun. There are also plenty of skating opportunities for the non-street skater!
