MANDATORY HELMET LAW.
The Extreme Sports Park is one of the nation's best skate parks, with awesome features including a 24 foot full-pipe! The park offers a great balance of street-style, transition-style and vert.
The first phase of the project includes 40,000 square feet of outdoor concrete skating surface and a wooden vert ramp. A second phase will include a 20,000 square foot building with indoor skate areas, concessions, and restrooms. In addition to drawing extreme sports enthusiasts from across the country, the park will be an attractive venue for competitions and clinics.
Louisville Extreme Park provides skateboarding, rollerblading and biking opportunities to people of all ages and skill levels. Centrally located downtown near Waterfront Park and Slugger Field, the 'X-park' will be accessible from all parts of the community by bus and car, or by self-powered means via the RiverWalk and the Beargrass Creek Bicycle Trail! The park's design was based on the input of a local task force and the results of a public meeting attended by more than 100 likely Extreme Park users. Using clay, participants created models of design features they wanted to see in the park.
