I hadn’t been out to the Beaverton skatepark since we tore the old vert ramp (image at top left for reference.) down. I decided to drop by the other day and I felt physical pain when I saw the crap they put where the ramp was. Well, my sides hurt from laughing. I’m sure that’s just what all the kids wanted too.
It would be really hard to descride the funky-ass ledge configuration and ledge-and-bank around the perimeter of the park. I hope some kid post up some footage on YouTube so I can see what the hell you are supposed to do with it. The centerpiece of the new section is a big intersecting-squares-two-level manual-pad thing. A couple of those low rails that the kids like so much rounds out the experience.
Judging from the quality of the concrete work I’d guess the maintenance guys built it themselves or the THPRD had a Come Play in the Mud Day!
Congratulations on your new facility Beaverton!
