SKATE PARK Have you heard the buzz? Our skate park is known as one of the top skate parks within the Pacific Northwest thanks to its three-bowl layout and extra smooth concrete. While the City of Port Angeles donated the land space for the skate board park, the Rotary Club headed the fund raising process for the $200,000 project. Ground was broken on the project in April 2005 with the park being officially open on Labor Day of 2005.
LOCATIONS - The Skate Park is located next to Erickson Park on Race Street between 2nd and 4th Streets. The park is open daily from 8am until dusk and is managed by the City Recreation Division.
A MUST visit skate park for
all intermediate and advanced skaters!
PATROLS & ENFORCEMENT AT CITY SKATE PARK Posted April 29, 2011 - The Port Angeles Police Department will increase patrol emphasis in the City Skate Park in response to citizen and staff complaints regarding bicycles operating inside the Skate Park.
Per Port the Angeles Municipal Code, it is unlawful for persons to operate a bicycle inside the City Skate Park. Sitting on a bicycle inside the Skate Park is construed as operation . Bicycle use damages the park and can create safety issues for the skate board users .
Persons engaged in willful violations can, as a minimum, expect to be:
Issued a 90 Day trespass notice. This means the person will be considered a trespasser if found inside the Skate Park for the next 90 days. Police officers can arrest and book into jail persons who trespass after getting a trespass notice.
Cited into court for a misdemeanor. A first violation carries a potential fine of $500 and up to 30 days in jail. Penalties increase with multiple offenses and a third offense is charged as a gross misdemeanor with potential fines and jail time of $5,000 and six months, respectively .
Police Officers have the option of clearing and closing the park at any time as a response to continued violations. Officers will also confiscate any unattended bicycles left inside the Skate Park. Officers have been and will continue to use the cameras at the Skate Park to identify repeat violators.
Citizens observing violations are encouraged to call the Port Angeles Police Department at 452-4545. Both the Police and Parks & Recreation ask for the community's help in keeping our City parks safe and clean for everyone to use and enjoy.
