Tobey Park, Memphis’ first neighborhood skate park, has plenty for skaters and cyclists of all levels. This includes two big bowls, plenty of ramps and rails, stairs, snake run and the now infamous Memphis Wave, that allows the daredevils to defy gravity.
The park is located directly behind the Shelby County Schools administrative office building (at Central and Hollywood). It’s free and open from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. in the fall and winter and from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. during the spring and summer. Open to all ages, but skaters must play at their own risk. Protective gear is recommended for adults, and kids under the age of 12 are required to wear protective gear (knee pads, elbow pads and a helmet) and be accompanied by an adult.
