From the Guide to Western Skateboard Parks in 1978

FEATURES:

The runs at Moving-On are color coded for different levels of ability. The beginners' run is a 60' snake with four turns that empties into a 6' by 22' bowl. This run is marked yellow. The intermediate, or blue run, has much tighter turns. The second turn is the most critical, and the third one leads into a 20' long half pipe that is 42' deep by 10' across. There are speed bumps along the track for extra speed bursts, and it then goes into an 8' by 24' bowl.
The advanced run, red, is a snake with tall, wide banks. The fourth turn is a 7' wall that shoots into a half pipe 7' deep, 25' long, and 14' across. The run then empties into a bowl, 8' by 24' with steep sides. The reservoir has different angles on each wall and the freestyle area, 30' by 60', has 42' of vertical.
MEMBERSHIP:
The membership is required and costs $3.00 annually. This includes an ID card and free skating on your birthday. Also, the owner throws a party on big holidays occasionally with all members invited. If you sign up another member, you can skate free that day.
Admission is $1.00 per hour and sessions run for two hours, but there is no minimum time. Sessions start every 30 minutes. Safety equipment may be rented at a cost of 50 cents for everything. Monday through Friday you can skate all day for $3.00.
FACILITIES:
A pro shop and snack bar are being planned for construction in the future. At this time, drinks are served from the office. Latham Skateboards is located in the same parking lot for sales. A game arcade is also in that same complex.
Moving-On is forming a team of five persons to participate in inter park competition. Also, skate clubs can be formed with ten or more skaters and can set up competition through the park. Teams can practice for 50 cents per skater, and park personnel will help set up interschool competition.

In February 1977, Moving-On Skatepark opened at 4333 Home Avenue in San Diego. The park boasted a shallow reservoir and three color-coded runs that ranged in difficulty from beginner (yellow) to intermediate (blue) to advanced (red). A $3 annual membership fee was required, but this included an identification card and free skating on one’s birthday. Admission was $1 per hour, and sessions usually ran for two hours. One could skate all day Monday through Friday for S3. Safety equipment could be rented for 50 cents.

Unlike the Sparks Carlsbad Skatepark, Moving-On was only 15 minutes from my house. I remember the first time I went there with my friend Greg Phillips. The park was fairly crowded, and some dick started to get in my face after I cut him off on one of the runs. Heated words were exchanged. When the other skater turned away, Greg planted a foot in the guy’s ass. The impact of the kick lifted the poor bastard several inches off the ground.
