Skate Park is located at the corner of Cabrillo Avenue and San Tomas Expressway. Use of the Skate Park is restricted to City of Santa Clara residents and Santa Clara Unified School District students only. The 16,000 square foot park is safe enough for public use yet is challenging enough for experienced skaters. Park features, such as rails, curbs, and bowls have been constructed to accommodate all levels of ability.
The Skate Park closes in inclement weather. Please contact the Walter E. Schmidt Youth Activity Center at (408) 615-3760 or Skate Park at (408) 615-3191 for opening and closing times or refer to the YAC monthly calendar (PDF).
Each skater must complete a registration form prior to skating. Please refer to the appropriate registration packet (Youth, Adult, Guest) for detailed information.
