The Lauridsen Skatepark will be a world-class skatepark located in downtown Des Moines at the northern edge of the Principal Riverwalk, just east of Wells Fargo Arena.

The skatepark will provide a safe, fun and challenging opportunity for skateboarders and spectators alike. The skatepark will also bring world-class athletes and tournaments to Des Moines. The skatepark plan was designed by California Skateparks. Features include:

  • 88,000 square feet of skateable terrain, making it LARGEST skatepark in the nation
  • Olympic quality street and park courses
  • A lower plaza (promenade) with pedestrian walkway and shaded bench seating
  • A one of a kind skateable art installation called "WOW"

Great care has been taken to ensure the skatepark will enhance the area and be an attractive extension of the Principal Riverwalk.
