Why Paris is a great place to skate ?

There a lot of great spots in the city of lights not always easy to find except for skateparks and well known places such as “La place de la République”. According to me, it still lacks a real skatepark that’s worth it as in other capitals. May be it will change with the 2024 Paris Olympic games !

“While it has never had the hype of Barcelona, the city of lights has held its own for decades. “

1. Bercy Skatepark

The Bercy skatepark is a legendary hangout for the city’s skaters. With 800 m², it’s the second biggest skatepark in Paris (behind the POPB, in Bercy Park). This skatepark has several ramps and other features for rollerbladers, skaters and BMXs. As the skate area is covered by a roof (useful when it is raining).

2. Place de la République

Place de la République is one of the biggest pedestrian squares in Paris. This place has been a known spot to blade and skate since his creation in 2013. It’s a good meeting place, well-connected to a broad range of metro lines. New version of the Volcom spot has been added in 2018. Check the video to see it.

3. Léon Cladel Skatepark

It is a”hidden” concrete skatepark on Rue Léon Cladel created in 2012. So, it’s away from the crowds (near to the Bourse). It’s the first of its kind to be set up on a public street welcoming skaters, bladers (and even scooter fans) between 8am and 8pm. There are steep inclined planes, curbs and pyramid. I like this spot for that.
