Lawton Skatepark is located near the corner of Clinton Street and 4th Street in downtown Fort Wayne. The Skatepark's 20,000 square foot facility has 9 tons of reinforced steel, 500 cubic yards of concrete, and is lit at night (requires a button to be pressed) until the park closes.
The park is surrounded by an 8' fence and has one turn-style entry at the east side. There are beginner, intermediate and advanced areas and has bowls, ramps, and "fun boxes" that imitate city scape. The most advanced bowl has a 9' drop off!
Hours for the facility are the same as all parks-open at 6:00 a.m. and closed at 11:00 p.m. during the season. The facility will close dependent on the weather and is generally closed during the winter months.
The lights at the park will turn off at 10:45 p.m., so that skaters will know it’s time to go home since the park officially closes at 11:00 p.m.
