Far Rockaway starts at the Nassau County line and extends west to Beach 32nd Street. It is a neighborhood on the Rockaway Peninsula in the New York City borough of Queens in the United States. It is said that the name " Rockaway " may have meant "place of sands" in the Munsee language.

Far Rockaway is a place, where entertainment is most important than anything else. The best way to enjoy yourself during visiting this spot is by exercising skateboarding in the most popular skatepark of this place. It is an all year round  skatepark with easy access and a parking area, from where it will take you some minutes to get to the park. Its location in harmony with the incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean and the great features that the park offers, can greatly affect the manner of your activity.

The park itself is pretty cool. The middle ledge section has about 3 different levels, all types of ledges edged with metal, manny pads and a couple euro-gaps. Exercise your skateboarding on a smooth ground with great flow and cement banks everywhere. There are six-stair sits in the middle of the park with a handrail in the middle and metal ledges on either side that will take your activity away. Furthermore,  there’s a medium size volcano and a circle like spine that give the park its unique look.

In order to exercise your sport, helmets are not required. However, especially when the site is overcrowded, it is advisable to be careful. Finally, on spot you will find many shops, where you can rent the appropriate equipment.
