Two bowls and a street course. FREE.

Great old-school clover bowl with concrete coping. Deep end is about 8 feet deep with 1 foot vert. Shallow end is about 5 feet deep with two lobes. Lines galore. There are some facets (flat spots), but all-in-all a really nice pool.

Huge 6 ft deep non-vert bowl that is mitten-shaped with an island in the middle of the hand and two extension walls. Great transitions, great hips. It can be hard to keep momentum unless you are good at hip transfers. Metal coping is sort of inconsistent, in some spots it doesn't stick out, in other places it sticks way out. The edge also has some spots where it dips back from where it is supposed to be. Not complaining one bit. This place rocks hard.


Hey , I just thought I would send you this picture of the 8 foot amoeba bowl at Wilson skatepark in Chicago.. It has real cement coping, and is very much like a real pool, except it lacks tile, deathbox and light. Submitted by Eggvert / AG. Just passing through Chicago. The locals shred.


Pretty cool bowls and good street area, its brand new!


I just sessioned Wilson Beach park in Chicago. Great site design park.
The pool is a lot like Chino's but the pocket to the side in the shallow
is not as far cut out. Same trannies in the deep and shallow though. The
coping is hand molded so it is a bit different there. No tile either.

The flow area/bowl is great, typical of site design. Big open bowl with
an island in the center, lots of hips and corners. The locals say there
is too much flat, but I liked it. You just had to work harder to get from
hip to hip rather than cutting straight across the flat.
