I would use this for a skating facility which is kind of a sports centre, maybe skate centre would be an appropriate language term.
A place that has an operator, staff, (might have opening hours, require a fee, etc.) e.g. http://www.worldskatecenter.com/park/

As opposed, a skatepark I have tagged consists of some obstacles and areas intentionally set up for skateboarding, as a public park under a bridge, accessible 24/7 and with no staff, cafe or whatsoever.
