Paine's Park

Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Designed by Anthony Bracali and Brian Nugent, Paine’s Park is not a replacement for LOVE Park. It is an evolution of the lessons about skateboarding in public space, the development of new ideas about recreation and public space in cities and towns around the world, and something new altogether: a beautiful public gathering point on a priceless site that welcomes skateboarding as its primary reason for being.

Nice skateboard park in Philadelphia seems to get pretty busy with a lot of skateboarders out there on nice days. It’s great that the city has put this here to allow skateboarders a place to ride since they’ve been kicked out of most parks

This skate park was friendly for three year olds to ride around. It was really enjoyable to have a mix of ages and skills. Would recommend for everyone into this sorry of thing or someone just interested in active people watching.

This is less of a skatepark and more of a park were skateboarding is allowed. It's a fun spot but it definitely takes some time to get used to. The layout emphasizes aesthetic a lot more than being skateable (IE large cracks right before ledges, sharp metal edges on all transition and really only skatable in one direction). If you're in the area check it out, but it looks a lot better in photos.

Hottest spot in Philly. Shred it up in the skate park, enjoy the river, and the walking trains. We spend all day there when we goto Philly. The coolest people roll in there.

Some stuff is a little big for beginners but over all a cool park and a lot of fun
