Seasonal skate park at Dayton’s Bluff Rec Center

A seasonal skate park has been open at Dayton’s Bluff Rec Center (800 Conway St.). It opened in May with a celebration by community partners and Dayton’s Bluff Elementary School students and staff. This project was started when recreation center staff noticed the tennis courts being underutilized in recent years. They reached out to City of Skate, and began conversations around creating a pop-up skate park, an amenity growing in popularity, instead. Utilizing recycled materials like old basketball hoops helped reduce costs while providing creative, eco-friendly, and unique design features for this skate park. Mayor Melvin Carter said “This new skate park is an exciting example of how we work together to revitalize our community spaces.”
This is the 7th skate park feature in Saint Paul, and the third skating feature built in the past year. To view a map of all city skate parks, visit
