The Bethlehem Skateplaza is a 23,000 square foot oasis for skaters and bikers. Located in South Bethlehem across from the Sands Casino, the Bethlehem Skateplaza is open from sun up to sun down every day of the year, weather permitting! The Za’, as it is known amongst its users, has the ability to host events, competitions, and classes for young skaters and bikers. If you have questions regarding weather, please call the Recreation office at Monday through Friday, 8am-4:30pm.
The construction of the Bethlehem Skateplaza is the culmination of years of community input, town meetings, and fund raising events. Over the years, skateboarders, BMXers, community leaders, and parents have recognized the need to provide a safe place for the rising number of action sports enthusiasts in the City. The Skateplaza addresses that need, giving skaters and bikers a designated space to perform the sport they enjoy.
Embodying innovation that has been reviewed by nationally known skate designers, the Bethlehem Skateplaza is rumored to be, “The new standard for skateplazas.” For those engaged in high action sports, the Skateplaza will be like none ever experienced. For non-riders, the Plaza will function as a passive space to watch the action, gather for fellowship, or simply relax outdoors.
At more than 750 ft. long, the Plaza will be a one of a kind venue capable of supporting national skate and/or BMX events, or celebrations and festivals where crowds can assemble allowing the local economy to benefit.
Since opening in 2010, the Bethlehem Skateplaza has been the go to skate and bike spot in the area.
Building the best skate plaza around takes a lot of time...and money. A little bit can go a long way to keep the Bethlehem Skateplaza the best around.
