Penn Valley Skatepark Kansas City Missouri
Officially opened in 2006, the 10,000 square foot Penn Valley Skate Park sits on the west side of Penn Valley Park. Features include a square shallow end with metal coping, “clamshell” mid section with tile and pool coping. There is a euro gap, eight stair with handrail and ledges on both sides, big dirt gap with a small one next to it, a big four stair with a rail, picnic table, a hip, a 10′ deep huge bowl.
Penn Valley Skatepark is one of the more recent additions to the park, and is also known as Kansas City Skate Plaza because of the similar appearance of a “plaza-type” Skatepark. Escapist Skateboarding has hosted at least five separate skateboard demonstrations, including Zero Skateboards, Circa Shoes, and Toy Machine.
The skatepark itself shares a group of tennis courts, and basketball court. It overlooks Downtown Kansas City with a spectacular view. The park practically shares a parking-lot with One-Park Place, a very recognizable building in the Kansas City Skyline. Also the park is right down the road from Penn Tower.
The Park rests atop the same grass hill as the Kansas City Scout Statue, and has a good close up view of not only Liberty Memorial, but also of the recently constructed new Federal Building.
