Rockville Skatepark

The Rockville Skatepark is a 15,000-square-foot skatepark located in Rockville, Maryland that opened in 2021 after a complete redesign and remodel led by the Spohn Ranch design and construction team. 

The Rockville Skatepark features one smaller but popular deep kidney bowl and an impressive street plaza with plenty of ledges, rails, kickers, and an elongated quarterpipe that flows into a mini-ramp.

Rockville Skatepark Overview

The best part of Spohn Ranch-designed skateparks is that they do a great job including park features that can be used by skaters of every age and skating level.

Some skateparks can be quite intimating for someone new to the sport, however, Spohn Ranch designs parks that are accessible but that are still challenging for veteran skaters. 

The Rockville Skatepark contains one smaller but deep kidney bowl where skaters can catch some air, practice their board stalls, and grind the coping.

The bowl is situated kind of apart from the rest of the park making transitioning from the bowl to the street plaza not as seamless as other parks. However, it is still possible to transition out of the bowl and drop in on a quarter pipe that leads you right down into the street plaza.

The mini-ramp is definitely a favorite by local skaters. The mini-ramp also flows into the elongated quarterpipe which allows for a skater to transition from the mini-ramp to the quarterpipe and then drop down with some speed to hit some of the rails, ledges, and the manual pad in the center of the street plaza. 

On the opposite side of the street plaza are another quarter pipe and some corner embankments. From a birds-eye perspective, the entire street plaza is almost completely encircled by a bowl with all of the elongated quarterpipes and embankments on three of the four sides.

The park is fully staffed and there are restrooms, lights for night skating, and some loaner helmets for skaters who may arrive without a helmet. However, do not plan on the park supplying you with a helmet. All skaters, no matter the age or skill level, must wear a helmet at all times when inside of the park. 

Summer hours are Monday thru Friday from 12 pm to 9 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 9 pm. Make sure you check ahead for fall, winter, and spring hours as they can vary throughout the season.

Also, some days and hours are open to BMX riders, otherwise, the park is mostly open to skateboarders and in-line skaters only.
