Recreation Highlight: Skate Parks Enhance Recreation Choices

Skateboard fans and inline skaters of all ages can enjoy specially designed skate spots that are also in close proximity to Montgomery County Recreation Centers. This means public facilities that cater to older and younger kids offer relief from the chill or heat, and extend your day of recreation! Parents can relax or take a class with a younger sibling at a nearby community recreation center while their big kids explore the skate park or spot. Here are four skate facilities that are also near County Recreation Centers. While some of these are not run by Montgomery County Recreation , they are nearby and can add to your family’s fun!

Ryan’s Inspiration Skate Park Just Outside Damascus Community Recreation Center
