San Diego Memorial Skatepark Description

The Memorial Skatepark features a 10' keyhole that is perfectly smooth with well set coping but lacks real pool tile. There is a metal band below the coping that is painted light blue and looks cool but lacks the clickity clack of real pool tile. Finally, a perfect keyhole in SoCal.

The skatepark also features a killer 90 ft snake-run. At the top of the run there is an 8' bowl which snakes down to smaller transitions with hips until you hit the end which is a 3' teardrop bowl. The challenge of the snake-run is the trip back through the run to the top bowl. It is doable but takes some legs. My only complaints about the snake-run is that it has too much flat bottom in some areas and it runs downhill from deep to shallow.

There is also a killer little clover/mini-combination bowl with a volcano in the middle of it at the front of the skatepark. This section makes for a good session and is a great place for beginners to learn how to carve and skate transition.

Street terrain features include an 8 stair with a rail in the middle, plenty of ledges, hubba ledges, and rails. As usual, most of the street terrain is leading into or a part of the reservoir section of the skatepark. The reservoir has some killer 3' to 6' trannys with one of the trannys at 7' with pool coping.

Bottom Line:
The Memorial Skatepark is a great all around skatepark. The concrete is relatively smooth, fast, and kinkless with metal coping all around with the exception of some pool block coping on a 7' 1/4 pipe in the reservoir section. The Memoial Skatepark is definately one the premiere skateparks in San Diego County. Road trip worthy, Yes. I have witnessed many seasoned veterans rip the entire skatepark and have seen its potential. Now it is your turn.

Skateparks are becoming more common as Skateboarding grows in Southern California and around the world. A Skatepark Directory such as SoCal Skateparks can help you to find the best Skateboard Parks in Southern California. We have put this Skatepark Directory together so that skateboarders in Southern California and around the world can find skateboard parks easier here in SoCal. Skateparks are important to the foundation of skateboarding. In order for skateparks to remain vibrant in SoCal we have to do our best to make sure that the skateparks that are built here are going to be skateparks that our children will want to skate 20 years from now. We want this to be your first choice skatepark directory and hope that all of the skateparks listed here will help you to find your way.
