description: Owl's Head Millenium Skatepark is one of NYC's oldest skateparks, built in 2001. It's tucked into the corner of beautiful little park in the sleepy South Brooklyn neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The main attraction is the bowl, which is really two seperate bowls strangely joined together in their shallow ends. The first is your standard square bowl with spine and second is a more like a replica of a real pool with quirky transitions, tile and pool coping around the deep end. A favorite for those looking for roundwall in the city!
nearby attractions: You're right by the water, the park is nice.
