Directions
The Hillyard Skatepark is located at the Northeast corner of Harmon Park (just south of Francis on Market Street) .From the freeway (I-90) take the Freya exit, travel north to Market st. continue untill you see the park on the left. From the north side of Spokane (Hwy 2) take the Market st. exit and travel on the road untill you get to Frances. go past Frances to the NEXT RIGHT and your there!

The Spokane (Hillard) park is a lot of fun. Has some elements of Aumsville, and Seaskate, but is very smooth. The Deepest bowl looks to be about 10 feet deep. And the other bowl looks to be about 8 feet deep, reminded me of Ballard. Fast lines galore in this thing. However, I didn't get to explore all of them due to the kids barging in unexpectedly.

There's a cool snake run leading to the Ballard sized bowl. The shape of the deeper bowl is a little different. And took a little to figure out, but it wasn't bad, just different.

The Skate Track. Well, there's this Orcas like skate track that runs around the outside. It was gnarly. Not because of the track, but because of the thousands of kids to wade through, just to run it. The skate track intersects with about three different mini ramps, and one street area. So, when I decided I was going to get a run on this track. I had 5 aborted tries before I successfully made it around. And even then, I was dodging boards, kids, and even bikes.

Over all, this is a fun park. Lots of kids are going to rip, there's lots of kids in the area, and the city just gave them something positive to do with their lives. The kids were facinated with the deep bowls. They will be learning it in no time. I wish I had something to skate like this in my city when I grew up.

12,000 Square Feet. Two center bowls 10 feet deep. 6 foot - 7 foot snake run connecting the bowls to the outer snaketrack containing a series of mini-bowls, pyramids, and ledges. A row of ledges, rails, and funboxes provide an enclosure rim around the park.


Grindline crew did a killer job here. The 2 bowls in the middle of the park are sweet. There is a nice snake run that flow all around the park, with diferent sections and corners. There ae afew ledges around and lot of flat areas, a rail or 2 and a woopdydoop bump. Love this park. i wish it had a unique feature like Hailey or Port Orford, but no complaints really.
