Outdoor Skating in Kansas City
OUTDOOR SKATING IN KANSAS CITY
You want to skate but the rinks are not open or you don’t want to dodge kids. Or maybe the weather is nice and you want to take advantage. Skating outdoors is a great way to work on your skills! To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of outdoor skating spots around Kansas City.
There are wheels made specifically for outdoor use that are softer and can handle debris that you may encounter on an outdoor track. Such wheels can be purchased at Legacy Skates. Some skaters just use old wheels they had retired from regular, indoor use. Like all things derby gear, it is preference, but it is not recommended that you use your current set of indoor wheels as they may get damaged during outdoor skating. Always make sure you are padded up when practicing your skating and derby skills!
Pick a spot, grab your gear, and get your outside skate on!
