At all points in the year, not just during the Tomato Festival, Pole Green Park offers a skate park. This was designed to find an appropriate place for young folks to roller blade and skateboard without harassing local merchants whose sidewalks were full of roller bladers and skateboarders beforehand.
Equipment: Skates, rollerblades, skateboard, shin guards, and helmets.
AMF Hanover Lanes is Mechanicsville's one and only bowling alley.
Equipment: A good-fitting pair of bowling shoes and a bowling ball.
