Glendale Skatepark has opened and it totally rocks Southern California with stellar design and massive concrete landscapes packed into a tiny 15,000 square foot park. It is free, concrete, outdoors, lighted, pads are required, and they are currently open from 10am-10pm with an early Sat. morning groms only session.

The Kidney bowl: This bowl has rad blue tiles, pool coping all around, and a deathbox. It's a little strange at first glance because the deep end goes uphill. It is towering over you, but it not too hard to get up to the top with a spin through the shallow end where you can generate a ton of speed very quickly.

The Clover bowl: This thing is big! Metal coping lines 2 of the clovers, the shallow end and the square deep end. In the last pocket the lip rises up to an over vert pocket and is lined with pool coping. The overt vert in here is pretty mellow and not to hard to grind since the rest of the bowl is about 9 feet deep and easy to generate speed through.

Snake Run: This area is a mixture of a street course, mini ramp, clamshell over vert pocket, a snake run, and a vert basin. This thing is squeezed in between and around the other 2 bowls. At the top end of this there is a bank drop off into a rail, a small mound, gap, or another bank whic all drop you into a pool coping lined tranny wall with a tombstone (left) and channel in the middle. This basin kind of flow down into the snake run where the clamshell lives next to a roll over mound and across from some small hips and lips. If you make it through this spot you're well on your way into the 10ft. deep vert basin. This thing is really tall with pool coping on one side and really short with metal coping on the other. There is a love seat in the middle of the big wall and slanted wall on either end to bowl this thin out. It is pretty freaking sick if you can get a clear shot through the whole thing.

Street: There are a lot of other little ledges and trannies sprinkled around the park. Lots of fun stuff on the back of the over vert pockets and channel trannies. They squeezed in little hits where ever they could. In this small 15,000 square foot park they really crammed in as much as they could and they did a killer job. I am happily going to be calling this place home for a good long while.

This park is a must hit for tranny riders! - J. Greenwood
