Skateboarding in Roosevelt Park

The only legal spot to skateboard outdoors in Philadelphia is at the setup in Roosevelt Park. It’s at the far end of the park, tucked under the highway overpass. It’s a good space, large, very popular with skateboarders. You can see some skilled people here. (Some get a bit impatient with slow young novices, mainly because they’re afraid they’ll run them over. Bring a helmet and kneepads.) Roosevelt Park, Broad and Pattison Sts. Opposite the First Union Complex. Open dawn to dusk daily.
Skateboarding outdoors anywhere else in Philadelphia is illegal and carries a $300 fine. Love Park has been renovated, specifically to block skateboarding.
