FDR Skatepark

FDR Skatepark

Philadelphia - Pennsylvania, United States

Skateboarding

Skatepark

Local skaters began constructing the FDR Skatepark in Philadelphia in 1994 under an overpass on Interstate 95, thanks to the work of the skaters, volunteers and donations for materials. Over time it has gradually expanded into what is now a park with high speed transitions. It has several areas, the main park (which is under the bridge), the pool, a mini ramp and a half pipe. This park has a lot of history and you can find images of FDR in some of the legendary skate videos, in video games and there is even a 168 page documentary book, of which the benefits received by the authors go towards the maintenance and expansion of FDR.

It's located just below the I-95 highway bridge so the central part is protected from the rain and snow. July, August and September are the driest months.
