St. Helena Skate Park
Subfacility of Crane Park
Located in Crane Park, St. Helena Skate Park was opened in October 2009. The 18,000-square-foot park was designed and constructed by Grindline Skateparks, Inc. In 2019, the skate park underwent a makeover - surfaces were cleaned and repaired, and four new elements were added. Additional work in 2020 included new fencing, restored landscaping, and new LED lighting.
