Just opened today, 4/16/02. Fun little park, but you can tell it wasn't designed or built by skaters. The bowl is a small 3 foot dish that's more like a rounded cement mini-ramp. The "upper" section has various little ledges and rails, and the lower section is a collaboration of banks (too many) transition, and a roller in the middle. Sporadic ultra-slick coping is everywhere. Not the worst thing for sure, but not the best. Nonetheless, its fun and that's what skating is all about right?

Fun mini flow park
(Updated: October 21, 2011)
They have lights and no staff.
Also, popular with scooters and sometimes BMX bikes.
BMX is not officially allowed, although there is no staff.
However, sometimes to police will stop by to point out that bikes are not allowed.
The police have usually just been giving warnings, pointing out the rules on the sign, but not ticketing, at least at this time.

On 3/3/2010, nearby Fullerton Skate Park closed; it has not been opened since.
On 10/30/2010 the city of La Habra talked about closing their skatepark also. They cited $30,000 of vandalism to the restrooms as a reason for wanting to close the skatepark. It would be helpful if skaters can appreciate this place and know that doing activity which could close the park would not be cool.
