Drop-in rates are available for $1 a day and are only available during normal operating hours. The monitoring system tracks users as they enter the facility.

To purchase a pass, you must sign a waiver and the behavior policy. If you are under the age of 18 a parent or guardian must sign the forms as well. The waiver and behavior policy can be downloaded here (pdf/531kb/2p). Please bring the completed forms with you when purchasing the pass. You may sign the forms on site, however a parent or guardian must be there to sign before using the skate park.
