Fredericksburg Skatepark Overview
One of the first things you may notice about the Fredericksburg skatepark is how smooth it looks. The concrete is perfectly poured and each element rolls effortlessly into the next all within one large bowl. The entire park is a bowl itself with street elements creatively scattered throughout.
When you first enter the park, immediately you are pushed to the right into a nice download slope that moves naturally into a series of rollers, banks, and hills with grindable edges on the top. From there you can drop down into the large waterfall kidney bowl, or you can skate onward to a smaller street plaza with several obstacles to conquer.
In this street plaza, you are completely surrounded by 270 degrees of quarterpipes, corners, and roll-ins. A good skater could go back and forth for hours between these series of ramps and use them to maintain speed while hitting any of the various street elements in the middle. In the middle, you will find a nice low-sitting flat rail, a manual pad, and a ledge.
Next to this street plaza area is a 180-degree open bowl/wall-ride element that skaters love to practice carving. The entire 180-degree edge contains coping where if you get enough speed, you may be able to see for how long you can hold that grind until you eventually need to drop back in.
At the other end of the park are two separate half bowls, one circular, the other a rounded rectangle. Both are much deeper than the area they are connected to where a nice large rounded-off mound is sitting.
If you are skating the rounded rectangle half bowl, feel free to pop out and check out the beautiful stairs. hubba, and handrail sitting beneath a nice long runway. Each of the three elements is sitting independently from one another and they are each designed for less experienced skaters.
Take to the runway, build up speed, and then choose whether you feel like taking the stairs, nose-sliding the hubba, or grinding the rail. The Fredericksburg Skatepark is open to skateboards, BMX bikes, and in-line skates from sunrise to sunrise most of the year.
