Farm Pond Skatepark (aka Framingham Skatepark)
The Farm Pond Skatepark is a 10,000-square-foot outdoor concrete skatepark located in Framingham, Massachusetts, a smaller community about halfway between Boston and Worchester.

Farm Pond Skatepark Overview
When approaching the Farm Pond Skatepark from the adjacent paved walking path, you will immediately come upon a nice five stair to clear before entering the rest of the park. Kickflip down the stairs before dropping in on the quarterpipe leading you into the middle of the park.
In the middle of the skatepark, you will find that you are actually in an extra-large open bowl with three different hips to skate in. Skate the curves of the hips, grind the coping, and maintain your speed as you fly around the open bowl and hit the various street elements inside.
Also, within one of the three hips of the open bowl, there is an extra-high vert wall ride that many skaters love. Pop a stall or handplant on the vert wall before dropping back into the street plaza section.
In the street plaza section, there are several different ledges for grinds and board slides, a kicker gap, a low-sitting flat rail, and plenty of rollers, banks, and quarterpipe access to maintain a continuous flow throughout the park.
The Farm Pond Skatepark is the perfect park for newer to intermediate skaters looking to master their transition-style techniques as well as the different street elements located throughout the park. The open bowl is great for feeling what bowl skating would be like without needing to drop in on an enclosed bowl.
The skate park is also located near the Paul F Barbieri Jr Elementary where younger skaters may come from when classes let out in the afternoon. If you are looking to skate at the Farm Pond Skatepark when it is not filled with younger skaters, then it would be best to come earlier in the day when the children are in school or later at night when they have already returned home.
The Farm Pond Skatepark is open 7 days a week, from sunrise to sunset, as weather permits. The Framingham, Massachusetts area can get quite a bit of snowfall coupled with colder temperatures during the winter. It is at these times that the park is closed for safety reasons.
