June 21st is not only the first official day of summer, but it's also National Go Skateboarding Day! Skateboarding is a great recreational sport, that encourages balance, self expression, and fun excuse to get outside and exercise!
We put together a guide of some of the best local spots you can "drop in" on.  

It is recommended that you avoid skating in wet weather, and wear close-toed, slip resistant shoes. Please note that some skate parks in Columbus are a little older. The terrain and surfaces may be a little rough, and it is always advised you wear proper safety equipment regardless of your experience level, and that children are supervised accordingly.
