Rogers Lake Park Skatepark, better known as Dirty Dota or just Dota is a Minnesota Skatepark based in Mendota Heights. Located just south east of Minneapolis and directly south of Downtown Saint Paul in the central Twin Cities area, Dirty Dota is one of the few gems in a world of dying out prefab skateparks.
The park is an old tennis court that was repurposed into a skate park back in 2004. The surface makes it very unique and the features at the park only add to way things beautifully flow together. The tree line along the west end of the park allows for shading of the skatepark in the afternoon and also provides protection from windy days.
