STONER skate park and don't get excited by the name because this not the park you want to be getting high at unless you want to get hassled by the cops that come by every hour or so looking for people who are getting high. This skate plaza was recently built and I have to say it is an awesome edition to the skate parks out here in southern California. There are now typically Monday and Friday morning sessions that happen at this park starting around 9am till whenever people decide to go to work. This skate park has a lot of good ledges to skate. On one end of the park there are these nice line ledges, good material and no one really cries at this place when you wax something. there are also some nice little practice rails along the side of the park some of which happen to be circle. There is a great long ledge that is built in the middle of the park with tons of speed from both sides and is perfect to be hit in a line. There is a little down ledge as well as a small square down rail. There's a really nice smooth bank to ledge that slides amazing usually but when it doesn't you just wax it and then once again it slides amazingly. I would say the best thing there though which is also the hardest thing to skate because it seems to be a popular spot for the skate boarders to sit around and hang out on is this nice long curve ledge. If you get the chance to skate this do it because it is worth it. There are also some other obstacles here and there that are fun too and tons of creative and original stuff to be done too. I'm sure when you get there you will be able to think of tons of lines to hit. Overall great skate plaza with lots of lines to be handled. Chill atmosphere for the most part. No helmets, pads or payment needed to skate here. Only negative, NO lights so skate it in the day or show up for the morning blader sessions which once again take place on Monday and Friday mornings.
No pad or helmet needed
No payment restrictions
parking is easy but read the signs because parking enforcement will come by and if give you a ticket without you noticing.
