Skateboarding appeals to youth who are generally not drawn to structured team sports, offering them an opportunity to exercise and socialize.
The Town of Oakville recognizes the need for skateboarding facilities and currently offers three outdoor skateboard parks and one indoor facility that is available on a seasonal basis.
Helmets must be worn. Additional personal protective equipment such as wrist guards, elbow pads and kneepads are recommended. The use of BMX or mountain bikes is prohibited.
