9/9/2022 - Mike D:
I submitted a bunch of information for Riverside Skatepark in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sadly, that park was demolished this week (Tuesday). The city is planning a new one that will hopefully be built by next summer!
Riverside Skatepark (located at 1225 C. Street S.W.) consists of metal ramps (two quarter pipes, a quarter pipe with a bank in the middle, a small launch ramp, a spine ramp, a tabletop with a rail, a low funbox, and a miniramp configuration of a 4 foot mini ramp backed up to a 6 foot mini ramp connected with a spine off to the side). There is a nice bank that runs around part of the fence with a hip. Stairs with two small handrails and a larger handrail have been placed near the outer edge (in the bank). A low, square flat-bar lies behind the miniramps. There's also two drink machines and a drinking fountain. Restrooms are nearby.
There are lights (which can be controlled by those who use the park until a little before 10:00pm). The park opens in the early morning, and closes at around 10pm (when the lights shut off). Riding surface is metal and concrete. It is FREE.
