Frankfort Skatepark Overview
At first glance, the Frankfort Skatepark is not really that much to look at. However, for the small community of Frankfort and the surrounding areas, the park gives kids and adults alike a good place to hone in on their bowl and transition-style skating skills.
Also, a lot of people come to Frankfort, Michigan in the summer months because of its location on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Frankfort Skatepark provides a nice skate spot for tourists visiting from other cities in Michigan to keep up on their skating skills, even while on a family vacation.
The skatepark itself is made up of one large open bowl with a smaller open bowl in the middle. The entire outer edge of the park is covered with coping providing plenty of surface area for skaters to practice their slides and grinds.
The open bowl in the middle of the park has a 180-degree half-moon coping that some skaters like to try to slide around with great speed.
One of the best parts of the Frankfort Skatepark is that you can drop in from anywhere. Aside from the two roll-ins located on either side of the large open bowl-shaped park, there are srop-in points lining the entire 360-degree perimeter.
Also in the middle of the park are two flat-top volcanoes connected by a small spine section that separates the internal open bowl from the deep end of the park.
Sorry to say, if you are a street-style skater, there may not be much at the Frankfort Skatepark for you to write home about.
