It's also open 24 hours a day and is admission free, with lights allowing you to ride at night.

    Any skater will tell you that the street is "the essence" of skateboarding, and Skatepark da Maia did an excellent job constructing a superb street section. The massive 19,400 ft2 (1,800 m2) street section is the largest in the park and is loaded with obstacles, including two stair sets lined up back-to-back, each with a handrail and ledges, tons of grindable curbs of different heights, ledges, banks, and some low-height grind rails. Plus, half pyramids with and without handrails and ledges, a variety of quarter pipes, launch ramps, and a gnarly volcano in the middle of the street section. The street section is perfect for getting technical and dialing in those tricky tricks.

    The bowl section of Skatepark da Maia is also impressive, with a diameter of 43 ft (13 m) and a depth of 8.2 ft (2.5 m). The bowl is perfect for skateboarders who enjoy carving and catching some air. It includes coping, allowing for smooth grinds. If you're into skating park-style, this is the spot for you. One of the best aspects of this skatepark is the smooth concrete, making everything better. And, yes, you can expect to find some old-school thrasher graffiti art, making it a perfect spot for some killer video clips
