Although, technically speaking, the skateparks address is 321 E. Walter St, South Bend, IN, this is slightly misleading. The actual skatepark entrance faces Michigan St., just north of the Michigan Street/Walter St. intersection.

This is one of the better skateparks that I skated on my midwestern tour. Almost 100% concrete (except for two quarterpipes that sit just inside the fence), the park consists of a small, tight street area; A half-mini bowl with standard transitions and bank ramps; And, a most excellent clover bowl that ranges between 5ft. and 8ft. deep, with pump-bumps and steel coping. The bowls transitions- all of which approach vert- indicate that this might have been a Grindline creation.

This is a pay-to-play park. There is an attendant at the gate, and helmets are mandatory. Hours are shown on the sign (pictured).

Perfect concrete job, fun multi-bowl 4ft. 5ft. 6ft. 7ft., and street stuff. Pay some $ to get in, must wear pads. No kinks, and nice sticky concrete! For photos, find South Bend Parks & Recreation web site.

This park is free an unlocked there are no bathrooms. The street course has a small footprint but the obstacles are pretty big in height. The bowl is great though, I’ll give it five out of five.

For a fairly small park, this place is not bad at all. The flow bowl is nice and open compared to a lot of parks and allows all kinds of lines. The concrete is weathered and gritty, for lack of a better word, but is otherwise well finished and consistent. Put it this way: You won't be sliding out unexpectedly.
