Goodman Skatepark Overview
Completed in 2017, Goodman Skatepark cost around $1.2 million and is one of the premier skateparks in the Midwest. The park, which was designed by Stantec and built by Hardcore Skateparks, is also often referred to simply as Madison Skatepark.
The street plaza portion of the skatepark features stairs, banks, handrails, flat rails, manny pads, big ledges and plenty more.
The park has two bowls. The ‘Eggplant Bowl,’ a backyard-pool style bowl named for its eggplant-like shape, is the bigger of the two with a 5-foot shallow end and a 9-foot deep end. It has pool coping and tiles all the way around. The second flow bowl is shallower, ranging from 4 to 7 feet deep.
The only downside to this sweet park is that it’s closed in winter, presumably because the place gets icy and snowy during the frigid Wisconsin winter. On a happier note, the park has lights so skaters can maximize those long summer days.
