SK8 Charleston, now under construction at 1549 Oceanic Street, is the Lowcountry’s premier concrete skate park. This 25-acre site overlooking the Ashley River contains 32,500 square feet of skateable terrain designed and built by Team Pain Skate Parks. The park boasts a massive 200+ foot long snake run that funnels riders down into a 9-foot deep pocket lined with Federal Stone pool block. The skate park features a Pro Bowl with an 11.5-foot deep end (18 in. of vert), an 8-foot deep side pocket (6 in. of vert) and a 6-foot deep shallow end.
There is an Intermediate Bowl with a 7-foot deep end and a 5-foot deep shallow end. Both bowls are adorned with Tedder Stone pool coping. The street course is over 315-feet long and contains three pieces of “skate art” and three pieces of marble. The park truly offers something for everyone, regardless of your ability.
SK8 Charleston is handicapped-accessible and has a raised building with a large viewing deck overlooking all the action. There is a small skate shop, food and drink concessions, restrooms, and covered and uncovered seating.
Background on the Skate Park
Composed of 3.3 acres of highland and adjoining marsh, the future skate park property at 1549 Oceanic Street is adjacent to I-26 and overlooks the Ashley River marshes. To the north is the proposed Magnolia Development.
The park’s design/build team is focused on creating a cost-efficient, quality, safe and durable skate recreation facility that meets the needs of the community. The team is currently working on plans for skate features, a building for restrooms and concessions, an event lawn area, and parking and drop-off areas.
