City of Novato Skate Park
State of the art skate facility opened June 22, 2002. Located on Hamilton Parkway, one block from Nave Drive, the new skate facility includes a 15,000 square foot skating area, designed by skate park architect Zach Wormhoudt. Phase I of Sport Court Island includes a skate viewing area, an open lawn area, a parking lot and other basic park amenities, in addition to the skate park.

The Skate Park is designed for the beginner and intermediate skate boarder and inline skater and features stairs, bowls, walls, curbs, rails and ramps.

Golden Gate Transit’s Bus 50 can get skaters to and from the park from downtown and runs approximately every thirty minutes most days. The bus stop is conveniently located one block from the Skate Park.
