Overview


Overpass Skate Park, located under the Highway 169 bypass in Hopkins, spans across 18,000 square feet and offers aggressive skating enthusiasts piano banks, fun boxes, kinked rails and staircases, as well as protective helmets and pads.

The highway overpass protects skateboarders, inline skaters and BMX bikers from light rain, but does not offer protection from rainstorms or the elements of winter. The Overpass is seasonal and operates as the weather permits.
