Stoner Avenue Skate Plaza
is the second city to build a skate plaza with help from The Rob Dyrdek/DC Shoes Skate Plaza Foundation. The project was spearheaded by the City of Shreveport, who sought to take a progressive approach on skateboarding for its community after an ordinance was passed in 2002 prohibiting skating devices in Shreveport's central business district and prohibiting skating on public roadways.
The Shreveport Skate Plaza is located on the banks of the Red River and covers 12,500 feet. With two manual pads, three sets of stairs with different rail set-ups, eight ramps, round and square low rails, and twelve benches the plaza provides tons of elements for the modern street skateboarder. The Shreveport Skate Plaza will also feature lights allowing skating 24 hours a day.
