About McGriff Skate Park
Honoring the memory of Palm Bay High School All-American James McGriff, a new park with a nature trail, playfield and a unique playground now has the fantastic addition of an urban skate park with rails, ramps, steps and a bowl. Parks and Recreation created an outdoor facility which will provide southwest Palm Bay with a beautiful Community Park that has ample parking, a large pavilion with rest rooms and the new-concept Nexus playground, and now, Brevard County's newest outdoor skate facility. The park's terrain is designed and built by American Ramp Company with their Pro-Terrain line, and input from local skaters was considered in it's design. The Nexus play structure is designed and engineered to attract and challenge more sophisticated ‘tweens’, kids between the ages of 7 and 14. The ultra-modern equipment, which looks like a sculpture, includes a mini-climbing wall, as well as other action-oriented features like scramble nets and spinning wheels. McGriff Park was created with matching funds from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program obtained through grants awarded to the City.
