Outdoor Recreation

 

MYRTLE POINT SKATEPARK

Skaters from far and wide have tested their skills against the concrete waves of this challenging park. Considered one of the gnarliest skateparks in Southwestern Oregon, the Myrtle Point Skatepark features a rolled pyramid, fun box, tombstone and ten foot bowl.
Built in 2001 on the site of Myrtle Point’s original town square with the input of local skateboarders, the 10,000 square foot concrete park welcomes not only skateboarders, but also in-line skaters, lazer scooters and BMX bikers.
The park is located between Spruce and Ash Streets at the west end of town. For more information contact the City of Myrtle Point at 541-572-2626.
