City’s skate park rules help promote safety, prevent damage

S‌urprise, A‌Z (November 18, 2015) With Surprise’s first skate park officially open at Surprise Farms Park, the city is asking residents to help keep the park safe and well-maintained by following the posted rules.

The rules note that the skate park is open to skateboards, scooters and in-line skates only. Prohibited use includes, but is not limited to, bicycles, BMX bikes, speed skates, caster boards, roller skates, go-peds and motorized vehicles.

If a skate park has not been specifically designed for use by the above listed prohibited items, there can be significant concrete damage associated with their use, causing the need for costly repairs.

There can also be safety-related issues with having sports equipment capable of different speeds, jumps, etc. using the park at the same time.

Skate park hours are 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. daily.

For questions related to the skate park, please contact the Surprise Community and Recreation Services Department at 623.222.2000.
