The park is 23,000 sq.ft. It is primarily street oriented. The park is 60% concrete and 40% wood. It is run by the City of San Diego Park and Rec Dept and will abide by their rules. At this time the park will cost $30 dollars every three months for a membership which will allow you access to the three Park and Rec skateparks: RPQ, Robb Field in Ocean Beach and Memorial southeast of downtown SD. Pads are required at this time. The last word I got was an opening sometime in April maybe. -Aric "The Colonel" Sanders
The Rancho Pe?asquitos Skate Park will be located between Carmel Mountain Drive and Highway 56 (Ted Williams Parkway) east of the Caltrans Park & Ride. The park is designed as a street course with a mixture of concrete and wood structures and a landscaped buffer around the entire perimeter consisting of trees, shrubs, and ground cover to help blend the project with the surrounding neighborhood. For security, a fence encloses the entire skate area. The fence adjacent to Carmel Mountain Drive will be constructed of Ornamental Iron to help blend with the surrounding community. The project also includes a staging area that consists of a check-in/storage/restroom building, seating areas with trees in tree grates for spectators and skaters, drinking fountains, and vending machines. Twenty-one parking spaces within the Caltrans Park & Ride will be utilized to maximize the recreation space. Disabled parking (two-spaces) is provided in the skater/pedestrian drop-off area at the east portion of the park site. The design of the park simulates a street course. Some of the design elements are banks, transitions, grind walls and ledges, rails, benches, a picnic table installed over a set of stairs, and a 10-stair element with ledges and a rail. The concrete portion of the project will primarily be along Carmel Mountain Drive, taking advantage of slopes from the existing sidewalk into the project site. The wood structures are situated along the southern boundary of the project. By using wood structures within this skate park it will allow for these pieces of equipment to eventually be changed or moved around. The landscaping includes two palm trees in planters within the skate area to not only create some shade but to also simulate a common street element for the skaters to use in developing their skills. The park is designed for all ability levels from beginners to the more advanced skaters.
