Skate parks in Orlando
Orlando Skate Park
Located in the Milk District, Orlando Skate Park is a local council-run outdoor venue dedicated to skateboarding and in-line skating. With ramps, bars, and bowls for practicing on, and skateboard rental options that are perfect if you’re visiting Orlando. Orlando Skate Park is regarded as one of the best concrete parks in Florida. Therefore, it gets very busy, particularly on weekends. It’s best to get there early if you want to enjoy a peaceful skate.
Entry to the park costs $5 for non-members, and that price includes all-day entry to the park and its use for skaters, skateboarders, and scooters. You can also use a BMX bike in the park for $7 per day. Helmet rental is available for $3, and it is required that all minor riders wear helmets with chin straps. It is also recommended that riders wear appropriate safety gear for their skating session. Orlando Skate Park is open 7 days a week. It opens from 02:00 pm through 10:00 pm on weekdays, and from 09:00 am to 10:00 pm on weekends.
Orlando Metro Skatepark
Orlando’s only indoor skatepark is a great option for those days when the weather is less-than-perfect. Offering purpose-designed places to skateboard, lessons, courses, BMX hours, and even a foam pit, Orlando Metro Skatepark is one of the best skate venues in Florida.
The park is open to the public every day of the week, from 03:00 pm until 09:00 pm during the week, 11:00 am through 09:00 pm on Saturdays, and 11:00 am through 06:00 pm on Sundays. It costs $10 to enter on Saturdays, and $8 the rest of the week. You’ll need to fill out a waiver before you can skate. To save time, you can fill it out in advance of your visit here.
Orlando roller skating venues

One of the most popular roller skating venues in Florida, Astro Skating Center is the place to go for fun-filled days zooming around the floor, where the whole family can get involved in the action.
