Venice Skate Park
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
When surfers were bored with flat waves—like Venice's legendary Z-Boys—they took to the sidewalks and thus birthed skateboarding in the process. While this more recently constructed skate park, built in 2009, doesn't really factor into that history, it has quickly become easily the most iconic skateboarding spots—chalk that up to its photogenic palm trees and location only steps from the shore. Watch from the fences and you're sure to see a bustling scene, oftentimes with a skate video shoot in the process.
