“The City of Sunny Isles Beach recently held its grand opening celebration of the City’s new Skate Park on Saturday, February 12, 2011,” says Susan Simpson, City of Sunny Isles Beach Cultural and Human Services Director. “There was a red-ribbon cutting ceremony, family activities, entertainment and demonstrations by skate board professionals.”

The new Skate Park is located at the west end of Town Center Park, 17200 Colllins Avenue. There is a fee to use the Skate Park which is operated by Sugars Drop Shop. Waivers are required and must be signed by a parent for patrons under the age of 18. Helmets are required and pads are recommended for all ages. Skateboards and helmets will be available for rent on-site at the Skate Park.

Each skate park also features its own mini skate shop and snack shop.
