The skatepark at Rick Oden Park (1010 W. Miller Road) is the second largest in Texas, boasting 46,000 square feet of skating area. Designed to provide fun, excitement and challenge, The Jon Comer Skatepark welcomes beginner and experienced skaters alike.
The skatepark is divided into three main sections: Street/Plaza, Bowl/Transition and Beginners. Designers made sure to include areas that allow beginners to learn new skills confidently, along with areas for advanced skaters to challenge themselves. The park is equipped with a wide variety of curbs, rails, hips, volcanoes, bumps, drop-ins, bowls and banks to give skaters of all skill levels many options to navigate.

Once fully completed, guests can enjoy walking trails, a food truck park, a permanent restroom and shade pavilions. Construction is nearly complete on the new baseball field, tournament-sized and complete with a bullpen area.
