So I went to the Dalles, Oregon to check out the new Spohn Ranch skatepark about a week ago. I remembered to set the alarm so I could get there before it was overrun with kids. I remembered to set the timer for the coffee maker. I remembered to charge the camera battery. I remembered my tripod. I remembered my sunglasses. I remembered CD’s for the 80 mile car ride. I forgot my wallet. I forgot my skateboard. Super!
A couple of panoramas.
It’s a pretty straight forward street flavored skatepark, but definitely not a street plaza design. Everything is solidly constructed and the finish is smooth. Looks like a fun spot, and according to the parks guy I talked to, it’s been packed with kids. I was there at 8:30 am on Sunday morning, so that’s why there’s nobody in the shots. The kids were trickling in by 9:30.
