A skatepark rarely mentioned, Saturn popped up in the Summer of 1977 at a point halfway between Skateboard City and IHB Skatepark.  Like many other Florida parks, it featured a fifteen foot high takeoff hill that dumped into banked snake runs, and had a banked freestyle area 150 feet by 60 feet in size.

The park was built in the southwestern corner of Arthur Dunn Airpark on a lease by the airport authority, similar to the arrangement between Surferdrome and the Sarasota-Manatee Airport.

Surferdrome and Saturn befell similar fates, and on February 28, 1980 the majority of Saturn's concrete was broken up and buried.  There is still a clear scar on the land where the park's remains lay.
