B.A.R.C. is one of the Park District's most unique properties, and it is improving all the time with the help of a team of volunteer stewards. The Park District hopes to turn B.A.R.C. into "THE" alternative park for all. The Master Plan tells most of the story to include plans for more outdoor skate structures, improved disc golf course, and improved BMX bike trails. That said, Burton Acres Recreation Center is impressive as it stands with an indoor inline skating facility, disc golf course, and a challenging trail system for BMX bike enthusiasts.
B.A.R.C. hours: dawn to dusk (approx. 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.). It's free!
Please follow Skate Park rules and safety guidelines. Helmets are COOL and required, but the unstaffed facility necessitates SKATING AND BMX RIDING AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Volunteer supervision (and an awesome resource for learning new moves!) is onsite Saturday evenings until 9:00 p.m.
Webcams have been installed by the BARC Stewards at the Indoor Skate Park for your convenience -- to see if there are people there to skate with or if your kids are still at the Park. These webcams were
installed for security purposes. Vashon Park District is considering the use of security cameras located separately from the webcams due to issues with theft and vandalism.
The BARC Stewards have been active in supporting everyone who frequents BARC, and we deeply value their assistance in keeping BARC useable, fun and safe for everyone.
Vashon Park District is proud to offer the new Skate Bowl by Grindline Skatepark Design and funded via the King County Youth Sports Facility Grant program.
Please be advised that BARC is unsupervised!
