Long Beach Skateparks

Long Beach has a long and storied skateboarding legacy. It’s more than a sport here, it’s a vibrant community that congregates at the city’s 10 skateparks. Situated in every corner of Long Beach, these skateparks have their own distinct features, looks and vibes. Here’s where to find them and what you’ll find there during the daily grind.

In many ways, Silverado Skatepark (1545 W 31st St) is exactly what local skaters have been asking for since it was their input that guided its 2023-24 renovation. The 5,000-square-foot skatepark had its reopening in late February with the $160,000 spent on the project–much of it from local donors such as the Port of Long Beach, Big Bang on the Bay and Long Beach Action Sports Kids (ASK) Foundation–producing a jewel of a facility, the only skatepark on Long Beach’s westside.

Cherry Skatepark at Bixby Park (130 Cherry Ave) represents the traditional epicenter of the local street skate scene. Originally constructed by skaters on an old shuffleboard court, it was eventually made into today’s permanent structure with classic elements set just a short walk from the beach. El Dorado Park Skatepark (2760 N Studebaker Rd) lays claim to being Long Beach's first skatepark. Opened in 2000, here you’ll find a mix of skateboarders, bikes and scooters.



Lincoln Park Skatepark (101 Pacific Ave), opened in 2022, is a 3,500-square-foot spot that includes a street plaza as well as lights. Gumbiner Skatepark (880 E 7th St) is a cozy, 2,000-square-foot concrete park that includes two benches, a flat bar, kickers to ledge and a flat bank. Drake Skatepark (951 Maine Ave) is another small park with three prefabricated elements, a rail and a good amount of open space for flat land tricks.
