Well, like they say, everything is bigger (and better) in Texas! That statement rings true even when it comes to skate parks. Having lived in Texas, Spencer Schneider knows it’s rare that the weather prevents skaters from testing out their tricks outdoors — unless, of course, it happens to be way too hot. Personally, he prefers to skate on the street and in public areas. But, he’s always on the hunt for cool new skateparks to try out. Here are some of the coolest skateparks Spencer Schneider has come across in Texas. Both of these parks are located in the same town, so you could make the visit a weekend adventure!
Pflugerville Park in Pflugerville, Texas
This one is something special! The layout is ginormous. You could probably spend an entire day at this skatepark and still have areas to check out for the rest of the week. Recently, Pflugerville Park has started to gain some serious notoriety in the skating community. Skaters from all around Texas (and beyond the state’s borders, too) have traveled just to check this sweet set up out! Check out this video from Dakota Schuetz to get a better idea of what the park is like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKAxtpnOT80
Northeast Metropolitan Park in Pflugerville, Texas
Also located in Pflugerville, this park boasts an indoor skating area and an incredible dirt trail for BMX riding. If you’re into skateboarding and BMX, this park is perfect for both. The layout of the park has something for just about anyone! Areas include:
- 8 baseball fields
- Basketball court
- Cricket field
- Indoor skatepark
- Multi-use trails
- 5 playgrounds
