Grant Skate Park Reviews
Clean, cool view, easy access, street skating, no cracks. People were nice and kept to themselves. Cool legs statues and Buddha statue. I didn't skate but my husband and son did. more »
Lots or rails and ramps, scooters and skateboards allowed. Easy access. It's a large area, clean , good use of an empty space . Benches and trash cans conveniently located . Well lit at night . more »

Great construction and layout - keep your eyes on any personal items that you may remove from pockets and/or backpack, ect because the locals told me that some groups that hang there regularly are in fact rather sketchy and will steal your stuff. I arrived to park at 9:30 and was under the impression that when the park is closed for the day that the night lights would shut off like practically every single skatepark across the United States that I have been to. Several Chicago P.D. Officers arrived on what appeared to look like 18 speed mountain bicycles. As I sat on the bench completely aware that the cops were peddling right toward my direction, I smiled and waved to ask the cop how his night was going? Immediately the cop ordered to myself and one other guy who appeared to be intoxicated from alcohol that the park was closed and to leave. As I stood up he then looked me in the eye and told me to throw away all of the trash that was at the park as if he has had trouble with me on a regular basis and I am there every day (which I am not). I immediately rejected his request because I wasn’t in the mood to service the community considering I would be “working” for free not to mention I was at that particular time simply a tourist that broke no laws. The cop immediately challenged me and said (paraphrasing) if I didn’t submit and obey his authority he would handcuff me and take me to the local jail to spend the rest of the night in a holding cell. I guess he was going to have me stand on his rear bike pegs as he would pedal his bicycle to the police station. Lol I asked you would take me to jail when I have in fact committed to crime whatsoever as well as my id provides where it is I am in fact from? He immediately became uncomfortable and said to just leave. From there I picked up countless empty beer cans and water bottles and caught my Uber back to my work truck...
