Garland Skatepark Overview
Garland Skatepark is a sprawling park with a little bit of everything — except, notably, a larger pool-style bowl. According to SPA Skateparks, the company that designed the park, there are other nearby parks in the Dallas Fort Worth area that offer large bowls, so the decision was made to not include one here.
It’s a bit of a shame for a park of this size to not have a vert or near-vert bowl, but it still looks like an amazing place to ride. There are essentially three areas: a mega-streel plaza, flow bowl, and beginners section.
The street plaza at Garland Skatepark offers rails, banks, stairs, A-frame, handrails, ledges, fund boxes, hips.. you name it.
The flow bowl has extensions, pump bumps, hips, volcanoes, and oodles of carvable corners.
