SO - you're looking to find a place to skate inside in Ontario? This thread is dedicated to indoor skateparks..what they're called, where they're located, whether or not they're worth checking out.
Peace.

yeah...i was down that way and wanted to check out what they had...normally they charge $10, but i asked if i could just try it out for a few minutes, and the guy let me in for free. (i had gone to St. Catherines on "business" and my time was quite limited). from what i recall, i think Shred Central was better, but this place was still quite decent. :)

Industry Skatepark (St. Thomas - near London)

Industry Skatepark

Address: 85 South Edgeware Road, St. Thomas (i.e. in the middle of nowhere, south of London)
Phone #: (519)633-5607
Website: http://www.industryskatepark.com
Features: various quarter pipes and transitions, small mini ramp, boxes, wall ride, etc...

Worth checking out? Unfortunately...no. This is the only indoor place in the London area, and although it's called "Industry Skatepark," the place might as well be called "BMX Central." This place was obviously built for bikes. And the only mini ramp there needs some serious resurfacing...one place in the middle of the ramp has a hole covered by duct tape, and the ramp itself is poorly placed...people always get in the way. If you're in London - unless they build a new place someday - this is the only indoor park around. But if you aren't from that part of Ontario, it's not worth the drive.

ON DECK (Ottawa)

Image

Address: 141 Bentley Avenue, Nepean (i.e. Ottawa)...one light south of Hunt Club Road, just east of Merivale Road
Phone #: (613)723-0550
Website: http://www.ondeckskateboardshop.com
Features: mini ramp...one end has a steep 5-foot transition, while the other is split 5-foot and 7-foot.

Worth checking out? Yes...when i skated here in December 2008, it was just resurfaced...high quality masonite...very smooth. It's a little steep for beginners, and that split can make it a little sketchy (depending on the direction of approach)...but i'm sure those with skills would find it a little more exciting than a basic mini. Plus, Mike Vallely did a demo there back in 2001 (check their website under THE SHOP for pics/video).
