Top Skateboarding Parks

Five spots sure to please any shredder

Kona Skate Park

Location: Jacksonville, Florida
Opened: 1977

The world's oldest privately-owned skatepark, Kona still boasts it's original concrete Snake Run from the late '70s. In the 30 years since it's construction, Jacksonville's legendary park has made its mark on the world of skating by playing host to some of the sport's top shredders, including Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, and Christian Hosoi. But don't worry if you're new to the sport, Kona offers free classes for beginners every Saturday morning.

Park Features:

  • Snake Run, which drops 100 feet by the time you travel its 700 yards from top to bottom
  • The Tombstone: a six-foot wall attached to a 12-foot deep bowl
  • 15,000-square-foot X-game style course with metal surface
  • 10-foot-deep kidney pool
  • 30-foot-deep bowl with 6'' tombstone extension
