Arroyo Youth Recreation Park at 660 Stoney Drive. From the 110N from LA get off at Orange Grove. Take a right to Mission. Then take a right to Arroyo Drive and Mission Street (on the site of the old recycling center). The road splits into 4 directions, but take the one that goes down behind a wall and you'll see the park at the bottom of the 1/4 mile hill.

This small ramp park is pretty fun and pretty basic. The layout gives a couple good hips to pop some ollies off of. The railings and ledges are pretty 'skatepark' standard. There is a one time $5.00 fee to get in and skate here. If your under 18 bring your parents or a legal guardian. Pads are required. Drink vending machines are on site and so is a shade area which is needed when the suns out blazing over the course.


from the Bulletin Board:

South Pasadena is one of the most uptight communities in southern california (and it's paid off for them in astronomical real estate prices). They're very proud of their cute and clean little city, so don't leave the trash cans out where anyone can see'em or you'll get a hefty fine...

Anyway, they're opening a cute little skate park made of Spohn Ranch mini-ramps and obstacles, and they're so afraid of "the element" that they have TWO fences around the skating area to keep out the unwanted during non-operating hours.

So I thought it'd be fun to overrun all the clean crisp south Pasadena skater kids and their mommies and daddies with a pack of oldster, unshaven killer skaters with serious chops. Flood the place with everyone they didn't want in their skatepark, namely, anyone old enough to drive, or anyone not rich enough to live there (they aimed the skatepark at 10-15 yr olds... and to accommodate people who can't legally drive they spent most of the skatepark money on a twenty-space parking lot... for mommy's suv when she drives junior the three blocks to the skatepark). The leave-it-to-beaverites need a lesson in humility.

nothing worth going out of your way to ride. Mediocre when it opened years ago and aging ever since.
