Park Spotting Questions – San Pedro, California

What's in the park?

They're working on a seven-foot-deep bowl on one end. (Right now) It's got like two big hips, bumps, and quarterpipes. Nothing streetwise. It's a tranny park–all pool coping.

Who designed it?

Andy Harris, Robbie O'Connell, Scott Smith, Bill Sargeant, and Danny Partida. They kinda took it (the land) over, and the city's been really cool about it. The city built a fence and allowed them to keep building.


No, not really. There's no supervision.

Does it have lights?

There's not really much light at night, but you can actually skate it. The cops don't care.

What's good about it?

It's fast if you get used to it. It's pretty smooth–fun transitions.

What's bad about it?

It's small, and it's not quite finished yet.

What pros skate there?

You see a lot of the guys from Long Beach. Kenny Anderson skates there sometimes. The San Pedro guys and the guys who built it.

Any admission fees?


Do you have to wear pads?


What about cops?

No problem.

When does it get crowded.

If it's crowded, it's not that fun to skate. Maybe around five or six or even after school sometimes.

What are the chances of getting beat up?

If you disrespect the park or leave trash, there's a 90-percent chance. No graffiti or anything like that, otherwise the city will take it away from us.

One to ten rating.

Since it's Pedro, I have to give it a ten.
