All of us at Mr. Smalls are sad to release the news that Mr. Smalls Skate Park is permanently closed.
When Mr. Smalls Skatepark opened 10 years ago, we were the only skatepark in the area. 10 years later, free parks have multiplied throughout the city. Even though the Skatepark will be missed tremendously, there have been some amazing memories created.
We at Mr. Smalls encourage you to keep riding and visit the many parks throughout Pittsburgh and surrounding areas:
City of Pittsburgh Public Skate Parks
