The first thing that stands out about the Lakeway Skatepark is the peanut bowl that skaters love for its speed and flow. The bowl contains one large deep circular bowl attached to a smaller circular bowl.
The peanut-shaped bowl is a nice touch for a smaller skatepark where space tends to be a little more limited. However, Grindline does a fantastic job choosing a bowl that is the appropriate size and shapes for the space they had to work with.
Separating the bowl from the street plaza is an elongated “J-shaped” quarterpipe that flows down into a 180-degree embankment on one side and a five-stair complete with a central handrail and a hubba to one side. On the other side of the stair set is a bank that some skaters opt for to bypass the five-stair and handrail.
Another interesting feature of the Lakeway Skatepark is the open mini-bowl at the far end of the park. This feature is shallow with a taller curved portion and coping around half of the smaller banks. The open mini-bowl can be accessed immediately after you clear the stairs, or hit the handrail or hubba.
The hubba is two-sided in that you can either grind the ledge of the hubba on the stair side, or you can change your approach and grind the ledge and drop down into the open mini bowl.
Also, you do not even need to grind the hubba ledge on this side. Instead, you could roll in with a smooth wall ride and drop down into the open mini bow to grind the coping on the opposite side.
The Lakeway Skatepark is open to skateboarders and in-line skaters only. No BMX bikes, scooters, or motorized vehicles of any kind. Helmets and pads are strongly recommended, especially for younger skaters.
The Lakeway Skatepark is part of the Swim Center Park which contains amenities like grills, picnic tables, restroom facilities, volleyball courts, basketball courts, a kid’s rock climbing wall, and during the summer months, the Swim Center has concession stands where food, snacks, and beverages may be purchased.
