The Akron Skatepark acts as an escape from the stresses of daily life for many people around the Rubber City. Located right next to the former sight of University of Akron's Rubber Bowl and Goodyear's Blimp Hangar the park offers a unique backdrop for skaters of all ages that come to the park.
Opened in 2001, the Akron Skatepark boasts a 19,000 sq. feet, featuring bowls, pipes, stairs and much more. The park is built for skaters of all skill levels.
