Modern and comfortable areas for skateboards, scooters, rollerblades and stunt bikes will operate in 15 recreation areas until late autumn.
Skate season has opened in city parks. Nowadays, you can ride skateboards, scooters, rollerblades and BMX (a kind of stunt bike) in 13 recreation areas. Modern and comfortable skate areas are equipped in Gorky Park, Sokolniki, Khodynskoe Pole, Sadovniki, Krasnaya Presnya parks, Olonetsky proezd park and others.
In Perovsky Park and in the Levoberezhie recreation area, special sites will open in late April – early May. You can ride some of them around the clock, as the lights are on at night.
So, in the park on Olonetsky proezd, a skate platform is located opposite house 1 on Sukhonskaya street. It will appeal to everyone who wants to learn simple tricks on a bicycle, roller skates or scooter. You can practice jumping and sliding on jumps of different heights, slides, pyramids, slopes, flyboxes and other figures.
And in the skate park in Sokolniki they skate even in bad weather. The site is divided into two zones. The first, with plywood figures, is located under a giant canopy, the second, equipped with concrete structures for jumping, is in the open air. Both areas are suitable for skateboarding, rollerblading, BMX and scooter riding. The site is located to the left of the administration building of Sokolniki Park and Astronomers Garden. She works from 09:00 to 23:00.
In Gorky Park, a 24-hour skate park is located between the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and the cultural and sports center. When creating it, the architects were inspired by the famous Berlin skate park. There are no edges and inclined railings, and the branching of the radii allows you to ride without jumping and losing speed.
Another modern multifunctional playground can be found in Krasnaya Presnya Park (next to the rental point and the football field). It is distinguished by a multi-level plaza imitating urban obstacles (steps, benches, flower beds and other architectural elements). In addition, in the skate park, athletes will have six jumps, races, mini-ramps, a bank and other figures to perform jumps and tricks. Rollerblading, skateboards, BMX and scooters are allowed around the clock.
And in Sadovniki Park, the skate area is made entirely of concrete. It is suitable for both beginner skaters, riders and skaters and experienced skaters. There are figures of different heights and complexity – these are bowls, edges, radii, stairs and others. The site is located at the northern entrance to the park. They ride here at any time of the day.
Beginners and experienced riders can find another round-the-clock concrete skate area in the Khodynskoye Pole park (near the CSKA metro station). A modern and comfortable park was built here in 2018. It is equipped with a set of classic figures to perform tricks. In addition, there are installed rails, mini-ramps, ramps of different heights, edges and inclined railings. On the territory you can not only practice, but also relax in a special area with benches.
On April 26, the Ferma skate arena will open in Perovsky Park. It will be located near the monument to the participants of the December armed uprising. Working hours – from 09:00 to 22:00. This is one of the largest and most functional skate centers in the capital. It is planned so that figures and obstacles vary in difficulty. Here you can improve your riding skills, gradually moving to a higher level.
And on May 1, a rollerdrome will start working in the Levoberezhie recreation area. Ramps, ramps, inclined railings and other figures to perform tricks are waiting for fans of roller skates. It will be possible to find a site near the entrance to the park from the side of Pribrezhny passage. Rollerdrome opening hours are from 07:00 to 22:00.
