  1. Hickson Park

This skatepark is a busy hub which came to life in the spring of 2013. It was a communal effort which brought members of the Aurora township together. Located on the East side of  town, this skatepark is great for a daytime session.

Skateboarding Stores and Reviews Aurora:

 

  • Spuds

 

Hold up! Spuds closed at the end of summer 2013. Sorry folks 🙁

 

  • Zumeiz

 

Zumeiz is not skate-specific, they have a little bit of everything between snow, skate and fashion. You have to hope over to Newmarket Upper Canada Mall for this one though.

Check out their website here http://www.zumiez.com/
