skateboarding for Teens

I just was informed there is a skateboad park at Sanibel school part of their rec. progra. Is skateboading permitted elsewhere on the island like the bike paths? Is it worthwhile to have my teens bring their skateboards. Any skate bord parks in the FT MYers area ?

The skatepark at the school/rec center is the only location for skateboarding. It is not allowed on any of the bike paths. Given the limited venue, I wouldn't have them bring the boards.

WE just returned form a trip to Saibel Please do not bring your skateboards. The Skate park at the elemenatry school/rec center is very basic and inder construction. The skate board park at Ft. Myers was also disappointing.

There is one that I have been told is more advanced, whatever that means, in Cape Coral. It's a bit of a ride from Sanibel. But skateboarders I know have traveled farther to satisfy their passion.

Check out the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce for more information.

a great park is a little over a hour hour away from Sanibel Island on Ft. Myers appropriatly named Ft. Myers skatepark. it's a pretty chill outside park. worth the drive if you're on Sanibel. I've been to the little "park" at the school on sanibel. big thumbs down. haha you gotta wear full pads and helmet and the park isn't much more then a few ramps and a rail or two on a b ball court. It's also only open for a few hours a day. pretty lame. I just skate the streets on Sanibel. I've been able to find some pretty dope spots.

It's also only open for a few hours a day when it's the hottest out. pretty lame. I just personally like to just skate the streets on Sanibel. I've been able to find some pretty dope spots. only problems come from an angry senior citizen or two every once in a while haha.
