Long Beach skate parks provide safe fun places for skaters to enjoy their sport. The parks are free and are open daily from dawn to 10 p.m. Skate Parks are located at Houghton Park, El Dorado Park and at 14th Street Park where the Michael K. Green Skate Park opened earlier this year. There is also a skate plaza at Drake Park. BMX bikes are allowed at Houghton and Green Skate Parks. Helmets, knee and elbow pads are required for all skate park participants while inside the skating areas. For more information about Long Beach Skate Parks, call (562) 570-3150.
