Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark
The Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark, designed by the premiere skatepark firm Grindline, is the first world-class, in-ground skatepark in our region. This state-of-the-art, public 30,000 square-foot in-ground facility opened in June of 2008 vaulting Houston into the forefront of American venues for this fast-growing, dynamic sport. The park has areas for skaters of all levels, from the seasoned pro to the beginner. Skaters can work on their kick flip, ollie, fakie big spin...or simply learn to stay balanced.
This is a really wonderful skatepark that my son loves. Diverse age group and skill level. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The only issue I have is that since the renovation there is no shade (unless it's at the end of the day and you can catch some some shade off the shrubs) I roast, and have gotten sun burn twice. I guess I need to invest in an umbrella.
Great skatepark, one of the best in Texas for sure; I couldn't recommend it more! I especially like the snake run near the entrance.
Great place to cut loose and skate around. You can find people of all ages enjoying this fun spot. You can take a break and still find entertainment in watching others enjoy the space.
This skatepark blows. You are required to wear a helmet, I'm 23 years old, I've been skating for 11 years, no helmet. I am skating as an adult at my own risk. I think it's reasonable if you're under 18 to wear a helmet but, everyone??? Seriously dude?? I personally cannot street skate with that extra weight on my head, so I definitely will be either going there and breaking the rules and simply taking off the helmet, or I will not skate here at all. Totally sucks because it's a sick park, but stupid as hell rules. Oh and not to mention you can't skate there even if it's the slightest bit wet outside. STUPID RULE once again. Everybody who skates, skates at THEIR OWN RISK. You're going to fall and bust your ass in the hot dry sun either way! The creators of this skatepark OBVIOUSLY never skated in their lives. Lol. 1 star, I've been to way better parks, none of them had stupid rules like this.
I love working out in this general area. As of January 24, 2017 there are parts that are still under construction, but I was able to take the steps and run on the track above the building. There is a sitting area off to one side and what looks like a small stage adjacent to the track.
