Betons Skatepark Riga Latvia

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2022-05-25

While wandering around Riga, my eagle eye caught a glimpse of what looked to be a skateboard park between some buildings. There wasn't a clear way to get to the park so I had to walk a bit to find a way to reach it. When I got there I was surprised to see an old water fountain turned into a small skatepark. There were a few Finish skaters there that stopped to skate it on there journey through Europe. They mentioned that there was a local pro skater from Riga that got funding from RedBull to pay for the materials to make the park. The Actual water fountain and park were no longer in use as the area became more industrialized and not visited by local any longer. Either way great little hideaway skatepark!
