Thrills for the Adventure Seeking

Leander, the placid community right on the edge of Austin, is known for its festivals and family fun, but did you know that Leander tops the Texas charts for adventure? In addition to homestyle restaurants and unique shopping, Leander is the perfect base camp for all your adventures, including one of the top-ranked skateparks in Texas!

When Skate The States was looking at the best skateparks in Texas, Lakewood Park in Leander, Texas was one on the top on their list!

“In typical Texas fashion, the skateparks in the Lone Star State are huge. In fact, Texas actually holds the largest skatepark in the USA! These skateparks are most definitely not lacking in quality either, and Texans should consider themselves lucky to have access to such great concrete playgrounds.”

Skateparks in Texas may be known for their size, but Lakewood Park is not just Texas sized, it also has well planned amenities! For families seeking fun for teens, look no further than the Skatepark and Kayaking at Lakewood Park. You can read more about all the features of this expansive park in this post, or by visiting the City of Leander’s website here.

Lakewood Skatepark opened in late 2020 and has a unique design that meanders through mature oak and juniper trees. The skatepark features a variety of obstacles including a quarter pipe section, four stair set, flat rail, down ledge, banked manual pad, and a volcano. This is a great technical street plaza suited to skateboarders of all levels.
