If you have yourself a couple of teens in tow, they will love the 22,000 square foot skate facility located in Redstone Skate Park. Just one mile south of C-470 and Lucent Boulevard, the Redstone Skate Park invites skateboard and BMX enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to test their skills. A beginners bowl, street skating run, and snake run with an 8 foot vertical bowl make for a challenging, but always fun way to spend an afternoon. BMX'ers are welcome, provided they don't have pegs.
