Skate Park

The Skate Park is a public facility managed by the Lancaster County Department of Parks and Recreation.

826 Eshelman Mill Road Lancaster, PA 17602


The quarter-acre skate park includes the following:
  • A snake run that is nearly 200 feet long
  • Three ovoid bowls with depths of four, six, and 10 feet with stainless steel round nosing
  • A full pipe, 16 feet in diameter and 25 feet long - this unique pipe, which is a marriage of half-inch-thick steel over shotcrete, is the only one of its kind in the United States. A meandering entrance path of some 600 feet and two curvilinear, concrete benches may be skated as well.
The Skate Park is open from sunrise to sunset year-round subject to weather conditions. Please call the Ranger Station (717-295-3605) before you visit as the facility may be closed due to ice, rain, or snow.

    • In-line skaters must wear the above equipment as well as wrist pads with metal or other shock-resistant material inserts.
