Maybe you’re more into BMX freestyling, boarding and skating. If so, check out the Mat Hoffman Action Sports Park at 1700 S Robinson, open from dawn to 11 p.m. year-round. Even better, it’s free and has been named one of National Geographic’s Ten Best skate parks in the country.
Oklahoma City native and resident Mat Hoffman is one of BMX Freestyle’s pioneers and brought the sport into the mainstream with his accomplishments, both on the course and in the business world. The ESPN documentary “Birth of Big Air” is all about his career and gravity-defying tricks on the BMX circuit.
At the Mat Hoffman Action Sports Park, there is a bowl course with various shapes, depths and heights and a street course featuring ledges and handrails, all welcoming your latest tricks.
Just don’t forget the protective gear.
Oklahoma City also has two other skate parks, the Route 66 Skate Court at 3350 W Overholser Drive and South Lakes Skate Court at 4302 SW 119.
