If you’re not part of the skate board community you may not realize that the best skate part around these parts is at Long Plain First Nation.  If you are thinking about heading out just turn south at the junction of Hwy #1 & 16 and a few miles down the road you’ll find Long Plain.  When you come to the grocery store and gas bar turn west(right) and head down to the arena.  Nestled next to the Long Plain Rez Plex you’ll find the beautifully sculpted skate park.  And while your heading out flip you radio dial to 101.7FM and crank up a little Rez Radio, we were treated to a play list that included Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers singing “Islands in the Stream” followed by the Headstones version of “Tweeter and the Monkeyman”.

Here’s a little photo essay and video that showcases this outstanding facility.  Click here to watch video: Long Plain Skate Park Video
