SLP Skateboard Park Rocks, Rolls—and Rules

Boarders without boundaries show off their skills—and forge friendships in the process.

A park within "The Park" within St. Louis Park, this concrete gem of a gym connects those within and beyond our borders.

"This is my community. I live here every day," Aaron Benjamin of Minnetonka says of the skate park within Wolfe Park, near the . 

Val Peña of Farmington adds, "At this park, if you're a skater, you're in. I've only come here one month and I already know seven people."

Resident St. Louis Park skaters were excited that "this park draws skaters from all around," and added "the park's ramps and jumps are just the right size."

"But it's the people that make it better,"  added Benjamin.
