Look around the average US city, and increasingly “NO SKATING ALLOWED” signs or restricted bike lanes dot the landscape. So where do you turn if you like to turn on a deck or BMX bike, try some new tricks, or maybe catch a little air? The Cherokee Action Sports Park. Designed by Pillar Design Studios and built by Artisan Skateparks, this 13,000-square-foot facility offers smooth concrete half-pipes, beautifully contoured ramps, and an ideal “abandoned swimming pool” concept that bikers and skaters alike crave.
Set on a 3.5-acre tract, the street-to-bowl transition elements are ideal for those just getting started, or riders who take their sport seriously. Located on Acquoni Road in the heart of Cherokee, NC, the Sports Park is open daily from 8 a.m. to dusk, and is free to the public.
So grab your helmet, strap on some pads, or just come to watch the action. Whether you’re on two wheels or four, the Cherokee Action Sports Park is ready to inject a little extra adrenaline into your stay in Cherokee.
