Wheel-A-Wave Skatepark was a skate park that opened in December 1977 on West Valley Avenue in Homewood. According to Dale Torok it was, at the time, the second-largest in the United States.

In addition to various concrete basins and mounds, the park had a concession booth and pinball machines. Helmets and pads were mandatory for skaters, who paid an admission fee to skate.
