Tigard getting close

070929 tigard
Looks like it’s all poured, some curing concrete under that plastic. Fence work in progress. Click here to see it bigger, Neil, you shouldn’t look, you’ll just get riled. Crappy little Tualatin is just down the road.

    Its done let’s call the dirty Czech,and session.

  2. What? Tualitin is the best park this side of the old Pier Park, or the old Vancouver park.

  3. Is the “street” area just a big pit? Or is it just the way the picture shows it? I’ll reserve judgement until I see it in person, but seems a bit off .

  4. Wide angle photo but the flat left to right is almost 40 feet. I hope everyone decides to stay away, more for me.

  5. Viva Dreamland and to Tigard for allowing them a little creative license. This place is going to be a lot of folks new favorite park.

  6. it seems like a lot less area for street than the original design called for.

    where’s the pickle exchanger?

  8. Err…I’m having trouble getting a feel for the park. Can you do me a favor and take 47 detailed shots of every angle and then take video of someone riding it please? OH…and can you please post the address and when the grand opening is?

    Thanks…. 😉

    YALL IN PORTLAND ARE PUTTIN IT DOWN!!!! HELLS YEAH.

  10. good thing it was DL and not purkiss rose or wormy that put the rail down the middle of a corner. it sucks when those other guys do it!

  11. Grand opening ceremony November 6 but they may open for use before then. Straight from the horse’s mouth. Dreamlands walkthrough/signoff next Friday!

  12. theres no rail in the middle of a corner…

  13. Because we know there are no corners in a street section. I think he means the big hubba or ledge. that is definately going to be in the way as I gyrate some gnarly surf soul carves around the edges of the street area.

  14. hmmmm….
    i can skate in that thing right? good enough.
    even though ledge-a-ma-things in corners arent really what im into.

  15. from city of tigard website:
    10/16 skatepark opens

    For what it’s worth, I’ve eyeballed this place in person and my pre-session view says this is the skatepark equivalent of a Sonic Youth record. There’s no questioning the talent of the team, they have a commitment to following their own artistic instincts, a handful of die-hards will swear by this place, and many more will have little to no interest in this park. For those willing and able to skate tranny, this place will push boundaries. For everyone else, Tigard won’t be your spot. I’d like see Trujillo roll this place.

  19. a sadlands-style replica with more dinosaurs would be the next logical step in skatepark evolution

    The Real Dick Cancer here…some other kook is taking my handle…To Johnny leigh boy, Seaside is cool, but to say it’s Blowin UP! is really an overstatement, it’s nothing compared to Tigard. So Johnny, watch who you are calling pussies, we’ve already skated it. Benji ripped it up openning day and tore it a new one. I skated it and thought that one pocket with killer vert was awesome. Here’s one for all you vert Lovers…check out VOX shoes and there’s a special tribute to Dreamland and it has some AWESOME footage of someones private bowl??? Tigard is to much for me because I’m such a pussy licker I can’t get kick turns down on transition. Phuc YOU dick cancer, you kook.

    damn that looks rad…where will the aging barnies put their hip pads in between runs though?

  23. Aging Barnies put their hip pads on in the parking lot, and leave them in until they get in the car to go home.
