Excellent, clean, fun park. Taking your kids to a skate park can sometimes feel a bit...”rough”. This park is anything like that. They have worked hard to create a really fun and unique atmosphere. The staff is extremely friendly and upbeat. They have a wide mix of ramps and rails for both entry level skaters and more experienced skaters. If you want to take a break from the park, they have a recreation room with ping pong tables, video games etc. The best part about skateboarding is the inclusiveness that the skaters uphold. Young or old, if you are on a board, you are one of us. These guys at the den get it!

My girls attended skate camp over spring break and had the time of their lives. Their confidence grew not only in skateboarding but as individuals. We will be spending loads more time at the den! It’s a fun, supportive environment. Cant say enough good things. 👏🏻

I skated here today for the first time and was really impressed. The park itself was fun, but I was really impressed with the staff and the overall atmosphere of the place. I brought my 4 year old daughter with me and we both skated for a bit. When she was done she played in the hangout area for a while and everyone was so friendly and welcoming. A couple of the guys working there even built Legos with her for a bit which made her day! It's great to be able to go somewhere that we can both have fun, we will definitely be back!
