Riverside Skatepark

Waterloo's first skatepark opened on Memorial Day weekend 2002 in Exchange Park.  A wide array of ramps and obstacles can be found within the first class skatepark.  The park is open to all roller blade and skateboard enthusiasts throughout the fair weather months.  This project was made possible by funding from the City of Waterloo as well as generous donations from the R.J. McElroy Trust, the Waterloo Exchange Club, and the Tony Hawk Foundation.
