The Skate Park provides skateboarders and in-line skaters an excellent year-round alternative to street skating. Groton's Skate Park in Sutton Park is the premier facility in Connecticut! The Park is open sunrise to sunset.

Skating Tips: National Safety Council There are boards with varying characteristics for different types of riding; i.e., slalom, freestyle or speed. Some boards are rated as to the weight of the intended user.

Protective equipment, such as closed, slip-resistant shoes, helmets and specially designed padding, may not fully protect skateboarders from fractures, but wearing it can reduce the number and severity of cuts and scrapes.

The protective equipment currently on the market is not subject to government performance standards and careful selection is necessary.

In a helmet, look for proper fit and a chin strap; notice whether the helmet blocks vision and hearing. If padding is too tight, it could restrict circulation and reduce the ability to move freely. Loose fitting padding, on the other hand, could slip off and slide out of position.
