Washington Street Skatepark

Washington Street Skatepark

San Diego - California, United States



Around 1999, the local skaters in San Diego fought to create a skate park under the Pacific Highway bridge where they could skate comfortably, but they were told off and it was painstakingly destroyed. To construct it, various permits were required along with construction insurance and a long list of other requirements that Ken Lewis and Matt Miller, with the help of collections and funding and the creation of a nonprofit organization, got to manage the park.

They began rebuilding it in 2002, thanks also to a great group of sponsors, volunteers and workers, and the result was this great park which is now one of the best in San Diego. This skatepark is full of ramps and transitions, the bumps and bowls are very well finished with typical pool tiles. There is also a kidney-shaped pool and the odd street ledge. If you go to see how it works, it doesn't matter what level you are but respect the people and the place as it is maintained by willful volunteers who love skateboarding.


You'll find the park below a bridge so the hot weather and rain barely affects it like it can at other spots in San Diego. However it's still worth considering when you plan your trip to San Diego that most rainfall is usually in March and in April the Santa Ana winds often appear and these can cause suffocating heatwaves.
