Riverside Skate Park provides a safe environment for extreme sports such as in-line skating, skateboarding, and biking. Access Riverside Park and Skate Park from the C Street SW parking lot (the small parking lot near the restrooms.)
Riverside Skate Park consists of a concrete surface with nine steel obstacles and ramps. These include a half-pipe, ramps, railings and more. One unique ramp grouping, called "the works," is one of only two installed by the manufacturer in the United States.
Riverside Skate Park was made possible by the combined efforts of a group of local students and parents, the City of Cedar Rapids Recreation Department, a state Recreation Infrastructure Grant, and corporate and private donations.
For those not interested in extreme sports, Riverside Park also has a playground, a walking trail and a softball diamond. Restrooms and running water are available during the regular operating season.
