Skate Park is located at the corner of Cabrillo Avenue and San Tomas Expressway.  Use of the Skate Park is restricted to City of Santa Clara residents and Santa Clara Unified School District students only.  The 16,000 square foot park is safe enough for public use yet is challenging enough for experienced skaters. Park features, such as rails, curbs, and bowls have been constructed to accommodate all levels of ability.

Due to The County of Santa Clara’s latest Shelter-in-Place order, the Santa Clara Skate Park one hour sessions are set to begin with health & safety  restrictions on Wednesday June 10, 2020. Skate Sessions will begin every Wednesday 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. for FREE 60-minute time slots for ages 5 years and older. Participants must use their own equipment as loaning or sharing equipment is not allowed. Skaters are required to wear a face covering except when skating and abide by social distancing protocols and health & safety guidelines. Advanced online registration is required for a time slot. For more information, please contact the Santa Clara Youth Activity Center at 408-615-3760.

The Skate Park closes in inclement weather. Please contact the Walter E. Schmidt Youth Activity Center at 408-615-3760 or Skate Park at 408-615-3191 for opening and closing times.
