Skatepark Guide - Hamilton Upchurch Park in St Augustine, FL

If you’ve been to the Surf Station at Anastasia beach in the past couple of years, chances are you’ve seen Hamilton Upchurch Park. I don’t know much about the backstory of this place, but what I do know from the signs is that the park is free, and there are board, pads, and helmet rentals available at the Surf Station. I also know that the place is on the corner of Anastasia and Red Cox road. So there you have it. It’s a nice small cement park with Curved 2 tier bench, a bowled corner at the entrance, a quarterpipe, and some other random obstacles.
