The former H&M in Uptown's Seven Points mall has been transformed into an indoor pop-up skate park, giving anyone with a board, scooter or inline skates a space to grind through April.

  • The 4,500-square-foot "Uptown Park Project" opened last month and is operated by JSAW, a religious nonprofit that also owns Help Boardshop in Edina.

Zoom out: Uptown has several skate shops, but the only indoor parks are in Northeast Minneapolis or nearby suburbs.

  • The new park lets skaters stay in the area all winter and makes use of one of Uptown's many vacant spaces.

📍Visit: 3001 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis. Open Monday-Saturday through April; $5 for three hours. Waiver required.
