Folsom is a super fun, super smooth, super good park. I skated it 4 times during my stay in Sacramento. It features a giant combi bowl at 10 feet deep, a square bowl to the right, a round bowl to the left, an 8 foot deep middle section that ties to a 6 foot deep left side and a 4 foot deep right side. 4 chambered with round hips, 45's, and 90's. All metal coping. Big extensions in the 4 foot and in the 8 foot middle section. The 8 foot middle one has a channel in the middle, used for entry and for airs over. Really nice design, really smooth and fast. The flow area is fun too, small, but you can launch from the 4 foot deep part right over the platform into the banks of the flow. A few street objects surround the bowl and flow area for the kiddies to railslide and sit on while watching the session. It's only 2 dollars and it is open till 9 or 10 depending on the time of year. Best park in the Sacramento area by far, and only an hours drive from Strawberry bowl, so do a double header if you do the Folsom thing. It is a half hour from downtown Sacramento. N Men are the locals and they are pretty cool.

Little kids are in full effect and some of them rip too. The only problem with the combi bowl is that the 4 foot section is almost always occupied by one or two kids and you can't really fly through there without dodging them. Pool coping would be nice too, but the metal works. Hot as hell in the afternoon, so wait for the after 6 session. Sacramento is in the middle of the desert.

Weird hours - 3PM-8PM Mon-Thurs, 3PM to 9PM Fridays, Noon to 9PM Saturdays, Noon to 5PM Sundays. Lights! Best time to skate is at night after 6 when the Magic Minivan sweeps away all the kids (dinnertime). Don't get me wrong, kids are okay, but the sheer volume of inexperienced youth makes anything resembling skating nearly impossible. It's like the advanced level of Frogger out there until they go home.
