Press release from Parks and Recreation:
Lawton Skatepark Open
The Lawton Skatepark, located near the corner of Clinton Street and 4th Street in downtown Fort Wayne, is open for the season. Hours are 6 am – 11 pm. The lights at the park will turn off at 10:45 pm to alert skaters that the park will be closing soon.
This 20,000 square foot facility has 9 tons of reinforced steel and 500 cubic yards of concrete, as well as bowls, ramps and “fun boxes” that imitate the city scape. The most advanced bowl has a 9′ drop off.
Only in-line skates and skateboards are allowed in the park. This is an extreme sport so protective gear is required when using the Skatepark: helmets, knee pads, wrist guards and elbow pads. This facility is not supervised and patrons must skate at their own risk.
