Moodus skatepark is in East Haddam, Connecticut. The skatepark is not that big but has a unique concrete park, with plenty of bold design features in a reasonably small area.
It’s an excellent park for experienced and beginning skaters/riders—one of the most functional parks in the area.
The park is a short snake run with small obstacles surrounding it. The snake run has a banked area at one end, with a wallride, ledges along the top, and plenty of hips. At the start of the run is a steep, tight clamshell, with a drain centered right at the foot of it. The banks gradually become transitions, terminating in a granite-topped bowl. The bowl is small, probably around five feet deep, and wide enough to hit many walls without washing out into the banks.
Outside of the snake run, there are a bunch of mellower things to skate. There are small hips and quarter pipes, a fun bank to slappy curb, and a nice pole jam—pretty similar to what you’d find at a new DIY spot.
The skatepark is fun, and it’s a great way to learn new tricks. The skate park has a flat bar, a deep bowl, and a ramp. The skatepark is open for 24 hours, and it’s not busy from 12 pm-3 pm. Summertime is the busiest time of the year, which means there are lots more skaters there.
Naturally, Moodus skatepark becomes a hangout spot for teens after 2 o’clock. Most issues that arise at the park are older and more experienced skaters being upset with all of the young children on skateboards and scooters.
There is not much shade and no water. So it can get scorching in the summer. Remember to keep hydrated.
