There is a new park in Poway, San Diego. It has lights til 9:30 is free and requires pads. 8ft bowl with snake run into it with a 10-11 ft vert wall. Street course has a pyramid with a ledge and some quarter pipes. Its right behind the cop station.
(2/18/04) - Poway is a fun little park, but it's not worth a special trip. The park has a small reservoir section with a pyramid and fun box thing, and a flat bank and small quarter pipe sections around the perimeter. The reservoir section flows into a small snake run that varies in depth from about 4 feet to about 6 feet. The end of the snake run has a vert wall that's maybe 8 feet tall. The snake run is fun, but it's poorly designed (in my opinion) as a series of bowls rather than a true S-shaped snake run. Skate it and you'll see what I mean. The outer deck of the park includes some rails and a bunch of ledges.
Pros - packs a decent punch for such a small park; fun little snake run; tons of parking; clean restrooms; unsupervised; great concrete work; vending machines; lights.
Cons - almost unskateable when it gets crowded; pad requirement is strictly enforced (they issue tickets without warning); police station is next door; no vert.
