Park Information: The Louisville Extreme Park is one of the nation\\\'s best skate parks, with awesome features, including a 24 foot full-pipe! The park offers a great balance of street-style, transition style and vert. The public skatepark is owned by Louisville Metro Government and operated by Metro Parks. The park, completed in April 2002, includes 40,000 square feet of outdoor concrete skating surface and a wooden vert ramp, along with restrooms. The park is open 24 hours a day, year-round. The Louisville Extreme Park provides skateboarding, in-line skating and biking opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels. Centrally located downtown near Waterfront Park and Slugger Field, the skatepark is accessible from all parts of the community by bus and car, or by self-powered means via the RiverWalk and connecting multi-use paths! The park was designed with the input of a local task force
