The Chanhassen Skate Park was installed in September of 1999. The park is located between city hall and the downtown fire station. A new hockey / in-line skating rink is also located on this site. Skateboards, bicycles, and in-line skates are welcome at this facility.
Four years of effort were invested in the construction of the skate park. Young people from the community met with the City Council and the Park and Recreation Commission pushing for the project. The 1999 Park and Recreation Department budget allocated $15,000 for the park. A second investment of $15,000 was made in the summer of 2000 and a third addition was added in 2003.
