| Review:|| The park includes three sections, street, tranny/bowl combo area, and a pool.
Starting with the street area, this section has a load of flat bank, ledges, grind rails, and eight stairs with a hand rail. Included around the street area, and the rest of the park, there are small stair sections, and smaller steps and ledges for more beginer types. My rating for the street section on the one to ten scale is a high six. Level of difficulty, Medium.
The next section, The tranny/bowl combo area is wicked fun. It includes a spine, a roll in channel, and all metal coping; which is set in pretty well on the lip, and not to high up on the flat. Plenty of forever lines with alot of round carvable corners. This area is five feet deep. And the Street area and the tranny/bowl area flow together nicely, or radically; which ever you choose. My Rating for this section is high seven/low eight. Level of difficu lty, Med-Low Advanced, depending on what you want execute.
The final section is the pool. A beautifully shaped left-hand kidney with real pool coping. Deep end is nine feet, shallow is five. The lines are there. Ripability.
My rating for this one is a difficult one. Reasons being, the contractor[CORA] that won the bid does not know the first thing about skateboarding or skateparks, nor do they have anyone on their payroll that skates, or has the eye for this form of Art. Anyway, the pool has several divots, and bulges on the walls, and in the trannies. It is definitely rippable, however, my rating for it presently is a three. My rating will go up to a high eight as soon as CORA fixes the imperfections. We are all working on getting it fixed before the GRAND OPENING, Dec. 13th.
My overall rating of the park, as a whole is a high seven to eight.
To end this little review, I have to say, this park is the jewel out here in a one horse town, in the middle of the desert; two miles east of Hell. If you're cruising on the 10 Fwy, or the 8 Fwy, it is worth the visit.
