  •  Hazards
  • Snakes, more than likely copperheads.
  •  Interesting Features
    Some of the best graffiti in Huntington is at this site. It's also interesting to try to determine how the park originally was laid out -- the hillside has slipped into the park, and obscures some of the walls.

     History
    In the 1980s, when skating began to become popular, the city of Huntington decided to open a skate park. A few years later it closed, due I think to insurance costs. The park, abandoned for more than a decade, is in disrepair, but still visited by occasional skaters.

     Future Plans
    I'm not sure what's happening in the area -- not yet -- but The Falcon has been demolished. Someone, either the park board or a private owner if the land has been sold, has bulldozed the entire hillside. If anything remains of the skatepark, it's under several feet of fill.
