The Lauridsen Skatepark is a shared public space. Have fun, be safe, respect others, & enjoy your ride!

Address: 901 2nd Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50309

Parking: There is no dedicated parking lot for the skatepark. On-street parking is available along West River Drive, as well as access to city parking ramps and other site locations for when we are hosting special events.

More parking may be added in the future.
