Harvard Skate Park

14701 Harvard Avenue  (Located at Harvard Park)
Irvine CA 92606

This park combines a positive environment with a high quality facility. The facility is operated by qualified, experienced, customer service driven staff that truly care about each kid who visits the park. The Harvard Skate Park is a place where respect and responsibility is a basic expectation of skaters, staff and spectators. The City of Irvine and the Harvard Skate Park work hard to promote building strong kids, families and communities.

The Grand Opening for the Harvard Skate Park was held on June 17, 2000. The Skate Park was opened after a lot of hard work from the contractor, the Architect, Purkiss-Rose, RSI and a group of local skaters excited to see a skate park built here in Irvine. This group of local skaters was involved from the very beginning... gaining council support all the way through the designing of the features.

The park has many features...the Pyramid, the Spine, the Bowl, Rails, lights for night skating, picnic tables, restrooms and bleachers for spectators.
So... come out and join the fun! Stop by the park today and give it a ride.
