From the National Skateboard Review
Fountain Valley Skatepark
Fountain Valley's most exciting recreational facility ever will be happening on Recreation Circle directly behind Warner & Magnolia off the 405 Freeway. Scheduled for a late February opening, Fountain Valley Skatepark will bridge the gap in the existing leisure entertainment offered there: miniature golf, Formula I race cars, batting cages, and a roller rink are among the diversions currently offered.
Some of the more interesting characteristics to look for in Fountain Valley are as follows. Once again the monolithic format will be used here. (ala Carlsbad Skatepark and Sidewalk Surfpark). We find the interest and diversity it creates has a lot to offer our imaginative and creative Southern California skateboarders. We'll incorporate some very unique never-seen-before, new concepts. Mogul Fields, snake runs and some radical reservoir shapes that are guaranteed to get your wheels in the air. All put together with the care and flair for excitement that gives a Skatepark Constructor park that soul and personality that really makes a fine Skatepark facility.
The landscape design will lend that esthetically pleasing park atmosphere to all participants and visitors while they're soothed by the mellow concrete forms and beautiful music.Inside, the air conditioned pro shop, concession and amusement area will offer rest, refreshment and diversion from the rigorous courses. The roof of the modernesque structure will be a spectator and film platform accessible from the outside so the community and all interested parties can relax and enjoy the show.
