Anyone can spend time learning to ollie in any driveway or park. But to really learn what your board can do—and have a ton of fun—you kind of need the obstacles of a proper skate park. And that’s exactly what skaters in Saint John have. Just remember—helmets are required by law in New Brunswick.
Saint John’s biggest and most challenging skate park is Station 1 on Station Street next to TD Station. It's perfect for all skill levels and ages, with ramps, bowls, pipes, and rails. The annual Mayor’s Cup Skateboard Competition is held here on Canada Day.
A smaller skate park is located at Market Place District Park on the City’s west side. It's ideal for more novice skateboarders.
