It is one of the best parks in the midwest, definitely worth driving to if visiting if your in detroit, its a must hit for rippers in surrounding states!

Outstanding outdoor concrete park. The only reason I didn't give them 5/5 on overall rating is that it can get very busy and crowded. Sometimes parts of the park are taken over by spectators but overall it is hard to not have a good time at this park. You see a wide range of skaters there too...the small obstacles and ramps often have transitions into bigger stuff so you can skate mini-stuff or go big in the same area. Locals have always been cool and respectful.

FUN!, rad, sweet skatepark
Stopped here on a trip from cleveland to near grand rapids. Great park! definatley worth driving a distance to get to. this is my favorite skatepark i've been to yet. even my freind who just started skating said he had a great time and would definatly return, despite the drive from Cleveland, Ohio. better then the pics suggest IMO.

For sure check out this one wether you're just passing through the area or are local. If you ride you will like Riley. And, it's not too far from the Drake park, which has some nice ramps. I recommend both for a well rounded day of riding.

Riley Skatepark rocks
If your coming from out of town, Plan on making a weekend of skating. Plenty of affordable lodging close to park. Park opens at 8am and closes at 9pm from memorial day to labor day. NO BIKES ALLOWED Sorry all you bikers. Best of all its free.

Helmets are highly reccomended but not manditory!
outdoor grilling outside fenced skatepark is permitted.
