The Carmel Valley Skate Park, located on El Camino Real in Carmel Valley, does just that!!! Opening in November of 2008, it has become a popular destination for Carmel Valley residents of all ages. Residents can enjoy the 13,500 square foot facility that comes equipped with a challenge course, cast in place concrete bowl, railings and ledges. Please continue reading below…
Residents of Carmel Valley and surrounding communities find that the skate park is a great way to engage in affordable fun, stay in shape and release pent-up energy after a long day spent in school or at work. The park is not only popular with kids, but is often heavily populated with adults. One man, Kirk, often escapes during his lunch hour to meet up with friends, socialize and skate around. Being an avid surfer, he enjoys coming down to the skate park and taking advantage of the consistent 11 foot drops in the concrete bowl. In addition, he finds that it is “a great way to stay in shape and take advantage of spending some quality time with his son Sean, who also frequents the park three to four days a week.”
For those who are not too keen on getting in on the action, there is a shaded structure, as well as sitting areas where spectators can observe all of the action taking place. The Carmel Valley Skate Park is a great way for residents to engage in physical activity, socialize and, most importantly, have fun!!
