Venice Skatepark (also known as Venice Beach Skatepark) is a monument of the Southern California skateboard scene. Venice Beach is a culturally vibrant neighborhood of Los Angeles where Venice Skatepark sits right on the sand. Venice Skatepark features robust transition and street sections. It has both deep and shallow bowls as well as rails, ledges, hips and quarter pipes. Whatever happens here, you’ll always have an audience.
The Venice Skatepark opened for use in 2009. It was famously filled in with sand in 2020 by the city of Los Angeles in order to prevent skating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not before long, the skatepark was cleaned out by skateboarders eager to skate the park. The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 video game features Venice Beach as a level several years prior to the skatepark being built.
The park is near many LA County coastal attractions including the Santa Monica Pier, Malibu, Marina Del Rey and the South Bay beach cities (Hermosa, Redondo, Manhattan).
