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.
