With nearly 100 acres, Plymouth Creek Park's family-friendly amenities include a playground, a skate park, a disc golf course, sports fields, and walking trails. It also offers a shelter for family picnics. In the winter there is a skating rink with a warming house. The park sometimes hosts community events, like the annual Summer Series Skate Event. Find information about these events on Plymouth's Special Events page.

Skate Park at Plymouth Creek Park
The Skate Park is Plymouth's only official skate park and is open daily from 9 a.m. to sunset. Skateboarders and in-line skaters will find a variety of ramps and rails. The skate park is home to the annual Summer Series Skate Event hosted by the City of Plymouth and 3rd Lair SkatePark of Golden Valley.
Plymouth Creek Park Playfield
The playfields include baseball, softball and mixed use. They are home to the Plymouth Pump Track. They are open a half hour later than the park -- until 10:30 p.m. When not in use, families can use the fields to play their own field games, practice baseball skills or get a game of kickball going.
Disc Golf at Plymouth Creek Park
This park is home to one of two Plymouth disc golf courses. It is free to use and open to the public. The other course can be found at Zachary Playfield.
Plymouth Pump Track
Plymouth's pump track is particularly cool because it is a hard surface (as opposed to a dirt surface) and can be used by skateboarders, rollerbladers and scooters as well as bikers. This 210-foot pumptrack was the first of its kind in Minnesota and can be found at Plymouth Playfield. Another cool feature of this pump track is that the center is a huge mural, created by Amy Mason, who was a senior at Perpich Center for the Arts when she created it. The mural features a bike theme incorporating iconic Minnesota symbols. You can see a good demonstration on this video I found on YouTube.
