When you think of parks, playgrounds, picnics and hiking might come to mind.

But unlike any park that exists in New York, this one you skate at.

Justin Rocket Silverman of the online magazine UrbanDaddy loves the Hudson River Park's brand new skate park for an urban adventure.

First Eyewitness News' Lauren Glassberg got a lesson with Jenny Willis of Uptown Skate School.

She showed how to get on the board. Also, wearing helmets and pads help, because Ellis shows how to properly fall off the board too.

Age shouldn't matter. "Keep your butt down, that's going to cause all kinds of badness," adds Willis.

The Skate Park is a unique spot, that was designed for advanced skateboarders.
