This skatepark has some really great tranny skating and some pretty good street skating elements. It's well built and designed. Drawbacks are the Fee's and bad hours of operation.

I finally got to ride this park. It's got a ton of great stuff to ride packed into a small space, but wait they are going to expand soon (2019). I love this skatepark!

The whole park is built on a slight hill, so the coping of the round end of the mini bowl is higher than the deeper square end, the shallow end of the combi bowl is higher than the deeper parts, and the pool sits at a slight angle. This makes it exceedingly difficult to carry speed up and into these shallower parts of the bowls.

The mini bowl is weak. The abundance of noping, the mellowness of the hip, and the lack of a clearly defined waterfall make it extremely frustrating to attempt tricks in the round end. The square end is good if you treat it as a half bowled in mini ramp with a 30º corner wall.

The combi bowl suffers from the same raised shallow end design flaw as the mini bowl.

The pool is the best feature of the park. Big, deep, fast and smooth, with relatively well-maintained coping all the way around.

The street section largely doesn't apply to me, but there's a fun 4' spine section of it.

Cove update.
Really a good park despite the pads and fees.
