San Diego Travel Guide

Skateboard Parks

Skateboarding culture has always thrived in San Diego, and recent changes in liability laws have encouraged a jump in the number of skate parks. A good number of top pro skateboarders live in San Diego and often practice and perfect new moves at local skate parks. Pads and helmets (always a good idea) are required at all parks.

Escondido Sports Center. This 22,000-square-foot skate park includes a miniramp, street course, and vertical ramp. The sports center also has soccer fields and a hockey rink. 3315 Bear Valley Pkwy., Escondido, CA, 92025. 760/839–5425.

Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA. This YMCA is very popular among the many pros in the area. It has a competition street course, two cement pools, and a classic vertical ramp. 200 Saxony Rd., Encinitas, CA, 92024. 760/942–9622.

Ocean Beach Skatepark at Robb Field. The largest skatepark in the city, this has a huge street plaza, bowls, ledges, grind rails, and quarter-pipes. 2525 Bacon St., Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA, 92107. 619/531–1563.
