FDR Skatepark
0.0 stars in 0 reviews
Delaware Expy, Philadelphia, PA 19145, USA

The park was built on donated land under an overpass on Interstate 95 with volunteers and monetary donations. FDR played host to the Gravity Games in 2005. Created by skaters, for skaters, it is considered to be an excellent park with endless speed lines, a mini ramp, and a vert ramp.

South Philly's FDR Park is a concrete, skateboard paradise, designed and built by skateboard enthusiasts. With features like the “Dome,” a four-foot wall of concrete that climbs up into a burly overhang; the “bunker,” a 60-foot long, 11-foot vertical brick coping that grinds real nice and keeps the place private from the road, this park is a serious challenge for skaters of all skill levels, all the way up to pro. The park is situated right under the I-95 highway overpass, right off Broad Street, so it’s protected from rain and snow. It’s also accessible from the Pattison Avenue stop of the Broad Street subway line
