Skateparks Amelia & any must do's


We will be coming March 16-23 for spring break from Kansas with our three kids. Our oldest loves to skateboard and we love to take him to different skateparks across the country. Is there anything close by? Any suggestions for restaurants, places to visit, parks etc? Out youngest is 4. Thanks:)

Have never been there, but found this:

Fernandina Beach Skate Park

Located at 25 Tarpon Street, this park offers a variety of ramps and obstacles for skateboarders and inline skaters. The park is open to the public, but you must complete a waiver at 2500 Atlantic Ave.

In addition to visiting the beaches you might consider Ft. Clinch.

South of Amelia Island are Little Talbot Island, Big Talbot Island and Huegenot State parks.

As Summersail indicated, the City operates a skatepark that is located at Main Beach Park. It is free of charge although minors must have an executed waiver since it is not supervised by City staff on a full-time basis. Contact the City Park & Recreation Department at 904-277-7350 and they can give you all the information. Located at Main Beach park is also an outdoor basketball court (also used for skate hockey), a volleyball court and a putt-putt course. The putt-putt is the only activity that has a fee associated with it.

I suggest you read through the other message threads where you will see a variety of suggestions as to activities and dining options. You can find a situation that might be similar to your family and see what was best for them. HOpe you enjoy your visit.
