Best Skate Parks in Nashville

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

As someone who recently got back into skateboarding, I have a little experience on this topic that should lend a hand to anyone venturing into the Nashville scene. Skate boarding has made a come back recently. When I was younger, it was mostly a young person's activity and mostly male dominated. Now you see all ages, guys, girls, and it's a much more diverse crowd. The Nashville skate scene is pretty friendly. Most people will offer help, are polite, and are generous with tips if you need it.


Nashville has two main parks that are the centerpieces to the city's skate scene. Two Rivers is the concrete park and 6th Avenue (Rocketown), is the indoor skate park. Both have their perks.


I'll also mention a few parks that may be a little off the beaten path, but worth checking out if you don't mind the drive.

Two Rivers Skatepark is the premier skatepark in Nashville in my opinion. It's free, it's outdoors, it's in a great and moderately convenient location. There is a beautiful park nearby. What more could you want? Oh, right, to skate!


In terms of the layout of the park, it's well designed and you'll be able to craft some great lines to maximize your steez. With flowing ramps, bowls, and rails, you have everything you need to nail that sick skate video!

This park is great and if it's raining or you just want to treat yourself, it's not a bad investment for a fun day of skating. This park is pay to play and helmets are required at the time of writing this. It's best to call and check the current prices. They do provide the helmets so that's one less thing to worry about.


They also feature a skate shop. This was the first skate park in Nashville I checked out. It was convenient they had the shop right there. I was able to purchase a complete board and skate shoes and was ready to go. They even offered a free day pass as a nice gesture for shopping there.


There are also some other cool amenities like a little coffee shop, bathrooms, and even a little diy park outside that people can skate for free.


As far as the park inside goes, you've got all the classics from fun boxes, to stair sets, quarter pipes, and rails. The one thing that sets this place apart is the huge half pipe with roll in. If you're feeling up to it, you can try it out. If you're less skilled, I would definitely recommend some knee and elbow pads before trying anything major here. If you're advanced, it'll be a great place to try out and get some footage.


Always remember to be safe, and don't try things beyond your skill level!
