This 30,000sq. ft. outdoor concrete skatepark is separated into three sections. One section is a flow course with about every skateable radius you can think of with unlimited line choices. The course changes from 3 ft. bowled corners to 11 ft. over vert corners. A mixture of pool and steel coping throughout. There are rolling over hips as well as regular hips on every corner. Words alone really cannot describe this place. Next to the flow course is the beginner area that has smaller transitions and mellow hips to learn on. Next is the street course. Team Pain has been taking a new direction in creating street areas to emulate real street spots. There are manual pads in every direction, hubba style ledges, straight ledges, a 7 stair rail, 2 smaller rails back to back, and a granite bench on top of a small pyramid. Really simple but lots of fun. There is also an 8ft. to 4ft. backyard style pool with a deathbox, light, a love seat, and shallow end steps. The great thing about this place is that it is free. All you need to do is fill out a waiver.

Very very nice flow area
A local artist just threw done some really cool concrete stain art work in flow area which is worth seeing. So make the drive for a great flow area. It's plenty big, wide open but with plenty of spots to get that speed way up. The pockets are are awesome to fly into. With the great beginner area it really keeps everyone seperated so you don't worry about wping out groms on scooters. If you love the flow definitly go you will have a blast!!!
