About Jock Leighton Park

Jock Leighton Park is a well-regarded skate park in Palm City. It’s one of three skate parks in the Martin County areal that’s only a portion of the park though. The 16.5 acres also hold a soccer field and football field, running trails, a playground with swings, and pavilions with picnic tables.

The Palm City Skate Park offers concrete bowls combined with ramps on the inner portions. There’s also a street course with all the amenities and obstacles that skaters are looking for. During peak hours, a docent is available to watch the skate park. While it is mainly a skate park, there are also a few picnic tables and a playground with swings for other members of the family. 

You can explore the small natural area with a little forest and wetland. The park has a decent parking lot and restrooms with drinking water and there are sometimes concessions stands in operation during youth sporting events. The main parts of the park are wheelchair accessible.
