Renaissance Skatepark is located on the southwest side of Charlotte, North Carolina, a bit south of Charlotte International Airport in Renaissance Park.

Designed and built by Spohn Ranch Skateparks, the park opened in 2021. It’s rectangular in shape, with a street plaza in the center and long quarterpipes and banks along two sides. This allows you to go back and forth between the quarterpipes and banks and hit the street features as you pass through the middle.

The park is built on top of an asphalt slab, and there has been chatter about the county putting some additional ramps near the new concrete park. It’s a small park, so it can get a bit crowded after school on weekdays and on weekends.

Renaissance Skatepark has lights for nighttime riding, but I haven’t been able to find the hours posted anywhere. There is no fence around the park, and admission is free to the public.

According to the video below, the Renaissance Park Skatepark is Charlotte’s first free public skatepark, which is pretty surprising. Charlotte is the 15th largest city in the US, and with a population of that size, you’d think the city would have been investing more in skateparks. But maybe I’m missing something…?
