Located within Woodall Neighborhood Park, on River Bends Drive, east off Ryan Road, between 22 Mile & Auburn Roads.

Plans began with a discussion with several area youths and adults at a Parks & Recreation Committee meeting in October of 2001. The result is Woodall skate Park, where visitors can ride skateboards, BMX bikes, and in-line skates in a fenced in area complete with jumps, rails, and other apparatus. The park was officially opened on July 1, 2003 and has remained a popular locale for skating enthusiasts of all ages.
