$ - No

Lights - Yes till at least 10pm

Address - 998 W River Drive

Builder - California Skateparks

Comments - At a whooping 88,000 square feet this is currently the largest skatepark in the US. There's a peanut bowl and a large flow bowl in the top section. Then a smaller flow bowl down by the snake run that's connected to the big rail section. The lower street section covers a lot of square footage and houses a metal "WOW" sign that you can skate. Lots of ledges and rails in all sizes and a sweet "S" shaped metal slappy curb. This place has literally everything you could ask for in a skatepark!!!

Directions - Located across the street from the Wells Fargo Area next to Rotary Riverwalk Park. For easy parking follow Second Avenue north along the park to University Ave. Take a right and then a couple hundred yards down make another right on Illinois Street. Make your first left then a right on W River Drive. The road will dead end into the sidewalk that connects to the park. There's free street parking all long that road next to the river.
