Charlotte, North Carolina, is better known for stock car racing than skateboarding, but the city does have a thriving skate scene and a growing list of skateparks. Here, I’ll spotlight some of the best skateparks North Carolina’s largest city has to offer.
Located about 10 miles west of downtown Charlotte, Belmont Skatepark is a 6,500-square-foot outdoor concrete skatepark in Belmont, North Carolina. The park includes a kidney bowl, a concrete mini ramp, and a small street plaza.
Located about 25 miles north of downtown Charlotte, Mooresville Skatepark is an outdoor concrete park in Mooresville, North Carolina. The park, which was designed by Evergreen Skateparks, features two bowls, a snake run, and a large street plaza. Opened at the end of 2022, this is one of North Carolina’s premier parks.
Renaissance Park Skatepark
Renaissance Park Skatepark is a small concrete skatepark on the southwest side of Charlotte, North Carolina, a bit south of Charlotte International Airport in Renaissance Park. The park was designed by Spohn Ranch Skateparks and is reportedly Charlotte’s first free public skatepark.
Located on the southeast side of Charlotte, Grayson Skatepark is a 13,000-square-foot concrete skatepark. This is one of the city’s older parks and features a combi bowl and a large street plaza.
