Oakville is home to five outdoor scooter and skate parks, spread throughout the town. They vary in size and style, but all pack a punch of fun and exercise for kids on wheels. We have details on what each one offers so you can choose the coolest one for your little thrashers.
Located at 3307 Lakeshore Road West
Shell Park is by far our favourite Oakville skate park because it is one of the biggest around. It’s frequented by skaters and scooter riders of all ages and abilities. It’s 14,000 square feet and almost all of it is covered in some very artistic graffiti, which makes it super appealing to its fans. It has over 26 ramps, plus stairs and rails. Ample parking is available.
George Savage Park
Located at 3200 George Savage Avenue.
Adjacent to Oodenawi Public School.
The George Savage Park facility offers a 3,800-square-foot park and includes a quarter pipe, flat ledge, flat bar, rooftop wedge to wedge and rooftop ledge, manual box and out-ledge combination, and cantilevered turnaround banks. It’s a fairly basic location offering just enough to keep the kids coming back with their wheels.

This newly built park is home to lots of playground amenities in one location. However, the skate pieces are limited to a small bowl, perfect for beginners and kids looking to avoid crowds. Street parking only.

The Glen Abbey facility offers a 3,500-square-foot park built on a concrete pad and includes several ramps, grind rails, a planter, a grind box and a jersey barrier. This location is built more for tricks and jumps, so it is better suited for experienced skaters.
