Sunland Park Skate Plaza

About us:

Big stairs, burly gaps and rails galore – welcome to the wild, wild west of street skating!

The much-anticipated Sunland Park Skate Plaza officially opened to the public on June 11, 2011 with mariachi flare to make a dude like Pancho Villa proud – he used to prowl these parts ya know!

The plaza is located at 4800 McNutt adjacent to Santa Teresa Middle School. It’s free and open daily from 7am to 10pm with lights.

It was a long game of W-A-I-T and lotsa trespassing to get here. After announcing an April 30th “soft opening” of the Sunland Park Skate Plaza, the city pulled back saying the skate plaza would remain closed until a grand opening event on June 11th.

With no plausible explanation given why a “finished” park would remain closed, skaters (and parents) were greeted by a locked gate at the sports complex and the 4-plus months of illegal “barge” skating continued for those less patient.

Numerous delays including the building of a sewer line and final payment by the State of New Mexico, slowed determination of any “official” opening date long after the concrete had cured on the 36,000 square foot skate plaza.
