Vets Skate Park
In the spring of 2012, we officially opened the doors to the long-awaited renovation of Scott D. Eagles Skatepark at Veterans Park. The park was originally named in 1991, upon the donation of the still-present vert ramp by Joyce and Doug Eagles, parents of the late Scott Eagles, an avid young Prince William skateboarder.
Today the 11-ft drop vert ramp is accompanied by a concrete street-skating park designed by east coast skateboarders. The spacious 60-ft kidney bowl is situated next to the 6300 sq. ft. open-flow course, designed with several ledges, stairs, grind rails, ramps and jumps.
This free park is self-maintained and skaters participate at their own risks.
Great place for the family to come and go on a walk together. It has a combined dirt walking path about a quarter mile long not to fat from the picnic area. You might want to make plans for reserving a picnic spot well in advance because its always busy. Skateboard park, volleyball, soccer fields, baseball fields, a facility pool ( not sure if registration is necessary for use), kiddies play ground with swing sets. Parking is crowded in the spring and summer months but we're still able to find a spot. A park representative/ grounds keeper is usually around though hard to find( we never needed them).
We had a great time and the kids play area is nice. There are plenty of life guards watching all that's going on.
Veterans Memorial is a huge park with a variety of amenities, including a nice playground, volleyball and basketball courts, baseball fields, and a community center. The park also contains a community water park (open summers) and a skate park, along with a few nature trails. This is a lovely park for locals, and a nice place to visit if you're in the area.
Fun watching children play football. Well policed by park rangers
Pretty fun. Nice size pool for the whole family.
