Park Information: A concrete plaza filled with ramps, stairs, rails, a half-pipe and what looks like an empty swimming pool will open its doors to skateboarders and bicyclists today. Besides more than a dozen obstacles constructed for riding, jumping and launching, the Austin BMX & Skate Park includes restrooms, water fountains and public art. It was built with $1.7 million in bond money approved by voters in 2006. Skateboarders and BMX bicyclists who ride small, maneuverable bikes designed for spinning and doing tricks have been lobbying for such a park for more than a decade.
Directions: The park is at 1213 Shoal Creek Blvd., the site of the Old Austin Recreation Center just south of House Park Field.
