Skatepark

LES Skatepark is how most people know Coleman Oval Skatepark as it is located in Lower East Side. It’s in Chinatown, just below the Manhattan Bridge, in Coleman Park, and is the perfect place for a long session or to warm up before hitting the streets of Manhattan. This skatepark has always been a classic but it became quite dirty and worn over time so the remodel was very much needed. They changed the rusty rails and the plastic ramps for cement and marble. It reopened its doors on the 21st June 2012 for the Go Skateboarding Day with attendance from pros like Stefan Janoski, Eric Koston, Clark Hassler and Paul Rodríguez among others and of course, the NY skateboard community. It was constructed thanks to the collaboration of California Skateparks, the skate community advocate who works in design, Steve Rodriguez from 5boro Skateboards and a grant from Nike Gamechangers, as well as the NYC Parks and Recreation Department.

You’ll find a huge variety of elements, among which we can highlight the numerous bumps, perfect ledges, rails, a 4 flat 6 double stair set, a pyramid with a wavy ledge, 5 steps with a rail and hubbas, quarters and an apple. The park hosts events like Manny Mania, Adidas Skate Cup, Element Make it Count, Mighty Healthy Best Trick Jam and the final of the New York City Riders Cup Contest Series.

LES Skatepark is free and open to the public every day of the year. The climate is better in the summer, between June and September, but a good month to visit is October as the weather is still good after the summer and the shops will also have sales on. From November onwards it is often cold and wet.
