Best Skatepark for Young and Old Alike

M&M Skatepark

Equipped with verts in the back half, and quarter pipes, rails, and boxes in the front street course, M&M Skatepark is a full-on skaters dream come true. Plus, Monday nights are Old Man Nights -- 21 and up skate for $5, after the kids are put to bed. This special proved so popular with the bus-pass crowd that Monday night offers clear runways, polite company, and less chance of trampled dentures. ?Without all the kids running at every ramp, the experienced skaters can watch each other, then try out new tricks,? comments Sam ?Matlock? Peterson. Up-and-comers leave their elders in peace, preferring to watch pro-skater videos from the lobby couch. Kids are welcome most days before 8pm, as long as an adult accompanies them.
