Willits Skate Park

Willits Skate Park


The Willits Skate Park was the first skate park in Mendocino County. What began when organizers approached the Willits City Council in 2000 finally became a reality at its grand opening in June, 2005. The council initially declined to function as lead agency, so consequently the Willits Skate Park Association, an adult volunteer service group, formed. It raised money, mobilized people, and got the ball rolling. The vast community effort that ensued was truly a testament to what can be accomplished when enough people follow through on a big idea.

The finished product was an 18,500-square foot cement skate park, one of Northern California’s premier skate destinations. In the end, over 6,000 man-hours of volunteered time and roughly $800,000 in grants and donated funds helped to make it possible.

Go to skate or just to check out the action. The park welcomes anyone on a skateboard, roller skates or rollerblades. Please note that helmets, elbow pads and knee pads are a must, and drugs and alcohol are strictly forbidden, as are fighting and other violent behavior, weapons and tobacco use. The park is open from 8am to 5pm during Pacific Standard Time; summer hours are 8am to 7pm Pacific Daylight Time. It is closed during inclement weather.

WHERE: From South Main Street turn east onto East Commercial Street. The park is about half a mile down on the left-hand side (north side) of the street.
