Places to skate in San Francisco Bay Area

Looking for the best places to skate in the Bay?

Here at Cruz, we are asked daily about where peeps can skate in the SF Bay Area. The decline of good old fashioned roller rinks has left us with few local options.

Fortunately, some folks are getting creative and keeping the torch burning for Bay Area skating. One of these folks is David "D." Miles, often referred to as the "Godfather of Roller Skating". He has been a Bay Area roller skating advocate and activist for many years and is the pioneer of just about every roller skating associated activity around here including Friday Night Skate and gatherings at The Skatin' Place in Golden Gate Park, a fixture for local skaters. Most recently, he has reincarnated an old church in the Lower Haight into the Church of 8 Wheels. Check out the events he hosts and go to for more info.
