The Asylum Skate Park and Skateshop
The Asylum Skate Park was founded in 2010 by 25 yr veteran skateboarder Jeff Conyers from FL who grew up skating at the Skate park of Tampa and all around southwest FL. With the love for skateboarding and wanting a place to skate when it was freezing cold in Chicago. He sought the advice on opening his own park and sought out the guidance and advise of Skate park of Tampa's owner Brian Schafer and the rest was history. The Asylum Skate Park became a reality on July 21, 2010 and opened to the public on September 19, 2010. The purpose of Asylum Skate Park is to provide a safe skate environment for people of all ages for in-line scooter ring and BMX along with skateboarding.
The store was founded with some base brands in the beginning to see what would work the peeps that come in asking for what they want. We tried to push the brands that you believe in and be open at the same time. We like to offer unique products and create a vibe in the store that will hopefully keep people coming back.
We didn't want to be just a skatepark with just an ordinary shop attached. To incorporate a good skate scene we had to put little bit of money to throwing events to generate hype. We host events where everybody can come and have a good time. We give the kids positive things to be a part of. We just try and do good for the community and give people fun things to do.
Asylum Skatepark is the best indoor park in Illinois hands down. The park flows super nicely. Not to mention that this is the cheapest park I have seen in a long time price wise ($12). Skaters, scooters, and bikers all get along and have a nice push to better each other in the trick department. Environment is super chill, good music playing through out. If you see the complaints on here I deem them invalid in my opinion. The heat is more than adequate, the prices are the best I have seen in years, and the people behind the desk also skate there as well. So, five star rating from me and should be for everyone else if they have common sense.
All of it was awesome. The terrain was awesome and would really heal others to skate outside of the skatepark. 10/10!!
my son is 9 years old and he really likes to go and hang out and have fun on his scooter. my son is a beginner at best with all this and everyone he has talked to has been nice and helpful to him. He is always asking when can he go back.
Great Skate park has so many fun ramps that allows you to do so much thing, friendly employees, even though the pass is 12$ this is one of the best parks I've ever yet been to
You have a nice bit of room for your bike or skateboard
