The Daily Shredd
If you love skating, you already know the challenges of finding a good place to practice. While the Metro area boasts a number of great outdoor skate parks, they are not always weather dependent or safe for young riders. The Daily Shredd offers an inviting 12,000 square foot indoor space where skaters can enjoy their sport year-round.
Great Skating for Everyone
Located in NW OKC, The Daily Shredd is perfect for skateboarding, roller skating, and inline skating. “Our ramps are smooth like butter, made from a surface called Gator Skin,” says Elena Sparks who co-owns the park with her husband Tyler.
The park has public skates as well as sessions for special groups, including roller derby, inline skating, and more. Queen Night is a gathering for female skaters of all ages as well as a safe space for LGBTQ+ youth. The Old Timers session welcomes anyone who wants to dust off their skills. On Monday evenings The Daily Shredd donates use of the entire facility to Forgiven Sk8 Church, open to skaters and non-skaters alike—no fancy church clothes required.
Building a Dream
Having grown up a skater himself, Tyler Sparks always wished for a facility like The Daily Shredd. A fun spot where he and his friends could skate, play games while taking a break, stock up on all skating necessities, and be away from the weather. He and Elena had tremendous support from the skating community in making their vision a reality. The park opened in late 2021.
The Sparks partner with OKC Skateboard Lessons—a team that has been teaching lessons to Metro skaters of all ages and skill levels for many years. The park also hosts kids` camps and birthday parties and includes a well-stocked pro shop.
“We want to give our community a safe, supervised, clean place to skate,” says Elena. “Our goal is to invite everyone.”
