It has 4 sections: street course, white bowl, halfpipe, bowl. The bowl is a basic square with rounded corners, but in the middle there is a island and one side has a bump (boob) in it. The bowl is does not transition to well but is still skateable, it goes from a steep tranny to about 2 feet of vert. The halfpipe is very good and around 10ft. tall. It is made from blue metal and is a long enough for 2 people to skate it. The street course consists of: long round rail, bank (metal), crappy one side pyramid hip( barely skateable), a double box, flybox with box on it, then 2 qps. The ground is asphalt and the ramps are made from blue metal. There is also a launch ramp that is moved around the park. The last section is a small 3 set with a flat hubba only 4 inches high or less. Then there is a curving qp/bowl thing which is white and starts around 1 foot and gets up to 4-5 foot. The qp/bowl thing is also a ledge all the the way around which can be skated. At the end of the qp/bowl there it is basically a wallride and the beginning dropping in is like droppin in a 3 set qp. Then there is a blue qp in this section also. This park is definitely not the best especially because of how easily you can be kicked out. Cross one section from the other without picking up your board...out of there. Sit down on a obstacle when the park is empty...out of there. Also braking any of the simple rules for example: chewing gum, taking off pads, cursing, food or drink in side the park and you will have there famous 15-45 minute time out of the park. If you are with your family here there are bleachers partially shaded by a tree for people to watch you. There is also a playground and baseball field there. Bathrooms are located about a 1 minute walk through the baseball field and there is a water fountain at the skatepark. The skatepark has a small gap on the side which you are allowed to skate depending who is working there. If you are in the area it is worth the extra 20-30 minutes to find a better park, but if you do not mind pads and want to visit go ahead. Do not be disappointed if you are looking for some good street action though. -

This park has a pretty decent half pipe, with a fairly large kidney shaped bowl. It has 2 street courses that include a rail funbox, and about 4 quarterpipes. Admission is free, but you have to wear all the pads you can think of. Give it a Try. My directions might be off a bit, so check out the website.
