The Shaw Skate Park at 11th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW is making progress after it was closed last year in November for renovations. Construction equipment is in the park and ramps are in the process of being installed. The park is operated by the DC Department of Parks and Recreation.

The renovation will include all concrete skate park equipment with steel enclosures, a new concrete surface pad and new fencing. There is also a new design planned for the facility. The original completion date was February.

The Shaw Skate Park is next to the soccer field and Shaw Dog Park on 11th Street NW. It is normally open every day, all year long, from dawn to dusk. Skateboarders skate unsupervised, but the city recommends that adults supervise children and that all skaters use standard safety equipment.
