VIDEO: The All-New Powhatan Springs Skate Park
Published on May 01, 2019
Arlington's Powhatan Springs Skate Park
is back in business, and by the number of ollies, railslides and kickflips, area skaters are loving it.
After being closed for half of 2018 and the first few months of 2019, construction fences came down on Fri., April 5. Skaters immediately flocked to the park, enjoying two conveniently warm, sunny days to break in the new pro bowls, snake run and street course.MORE: See photos of the new park being built
The County renovated the park
because of safety risks posed by normal wear of the park's original concrete. Changes in skating over the nearly 15 years since the park was built also necessitated some updates to better meet users' needs.
We visited the park soon after it opened to see how Arlington skaters were enjoying it. Watch the video
to see what we found.MORE: Take our 360-degree virtual tour of the new skate park

on Sat., May 4, at 3 p.m.!For more information about Powhatan Springs Skate Park, visit the County website.
