In 2005, a group of youth skateboarders approached the Parks
and Recreation Advisory Board with a petition for a public skateboard
park. After four years, several fundraisers, two grants, and a land
donation, the City of Navasota has contracted with Ideal Skateparks
of Austin for the design and construction of a public concrete
skateboard park. This park was built FOR skaters, BY skaters. Every
effort was made to get community, skater and stakeholder input in the
100 Stadium Drive
Navasota, Texas 77868
This park remains entirely free and open daily, with no limit
on hours access outside of the City’s park curfew. There will be no
direct supervision of the park so skate at your own risk, however, the
Parks and Recreation staff offices are located directly across the
street and the Department anticipates the need to monitor the park
equipment and park aesthetics in order to maintain a high quality
Efforts have been made to maintain rules to keep the park safe, with
the idea in mind that skating, like any other sport, does carry some
risk of injury. Please spread the word that this park is an open space in our community -- KEEP YOUR PARK CLEAN, KEEP IT OPEN. Please help us minimize the trash by throwing yours away. Thanks.
The rules are posted at the site and are as follows:
- No bicycles allowed.
- All skaters should wear, at a minimum, safety equipment which includes elbow pads, helmets and proper shoes.
- Children under the age of 10 should be supervised by an adult
The park officially opened on Saturday, March 27, 2010 to skaters and their families and friends.
