Does anyone know of a smooth surface to do some outdoor skating in town?

Dudley Park is a nice, smooth loop. But there is a a big downhill. I have skated this hill many times and only busted ass twice, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're going alone.

You can approach it from the other direction and skate up the hill (skate the loop counterclockwise), or skate the loop clockwise and turn around when you get to the hill. Either way, it's a fun park.

I skated outside yesterday at BHL on Tallasee. There is a walkway in the back with evenly spaced support bars that I used to practice weaving. It was great! I'll be skating there again Tuesday evening of anyone wants to join me...

Sandy Creek Park is nice: manageable hills, low traffic. It does have a few rough spots I wouldn't skate without outdoor wheels.

East Athens Park: along with a skate park with a "shallow end" the running track is nice for skating with only one mild hill.

Old K-Mart parking lot on East side is super smooth and fun, sure it's not allowed but I've not been kicked out.

Parking Garages (also not allowed) look like fun.

Also, any sidewalk as long as you can control your stops & jump a curve
