The pictures are definitely better than the park. Waldport is a sand pit. A good idea, but not carried through. There is no grass or landscaping around the park, so there is a fine coat of sand over the whole place. I had to use a towel from my trunk to scoop out mud and pine cones from the drain area. The walls are also slathered up with some sealant that sweats and adds to the slip factor. The park is surrounded by Oregon redwoods and it is in the shade 90 percent of the day, which means it doesn't really dry. You can tell it is not really a favorite among the awesome Oregon parks because there is really no daily skaters sessioning, except for the 10 and under age bracket. It is a shame really. It looks killer. You can get up on that 6 foot over vert wall, but the walls are wavy by today's standards (Glendale, Lincoln City, Etnies, Poway...) Worth the stop because you may get lucky and find it dry, but bring a broom and a towel.

This park is definitely not like any other created up to this time (Summer 2004). The obvious feature is the crazy parabolic 'fan' around the almost cradle. It's not easy getting around the cradle on the fan let me tell ya. The remainder of the bowl has a couple hips and is fun.

Outside of the center bowl is what we called the race track. You can just haul ass around the park and drop off at random little hits all over the place. Bumps, Lumps, Hips, rails and stuff are all along the path so just pull off and take a hit. I think our crew had more fun doing that then hitting the fan.
