Excerpt from the Guide to Western Skateboard Parks 1978:


The six skating areas at Skatepark Paramount are designed for all levels of ability. The beginners run offers a safe area for the beginning skateboarder to learn how to handle curves, banks, and bowls. The freestyle area is a flat 2300 square foot area with banked walls and a take-off ramp. The slalom run is the only head-to-head 50 meter slalom run of its kind in existence. Offering a unique challenge to the slalom skater, this run will be electronically timed in the future.
The Spillway is a large, riverbed-like run over 140' in length, and ends in an incredible 50' wide bowl. The serpentine run is a 300' multiple "S" run, with safety coping and vertical walls that get progressively higher. This empties into a radical swimming pool type bowl 16' deep with 8' of vertical. This run is definitely for the advanced skater. The Channel run is a 20' wide, 10' deep half pipe that features vertical wall design and safety coping.
As one of the most functionally designed parks in Southern California, Skatepark Paramount will provide you with some hot skating on their radical runs.
