Beaverton Skatepark

Location Beaverton skatepark: Across from the Tualatin Hills Athletic Center.

Directions address: Take Hwy 26 westbound to the Cornell Rd. exit. At the top of the exit, take a left onto Cornell Rd. Go to the second light, which is 158th, and take a left. Get in the left lane and turn left on Blueridge Drive. Follow the bend in the road and take the first right after Papa’s Pizza. The Beaverton skatepark is on the right.

Description: This is a new Beaverton skatepark in Oregon built out of waterproof Masonite. It has several six-foot ramps, some alone, and some across from each other. It has a large pyramid and a fun box, as well as a kinked rail, curbs, steps, and a kinked curb with inset metal edges. The entire park has great coping and clean-finished edges. There is also a smooth open concrete area for practicing tricks. It also has a vert ramp.

Review: We thought that this was a great park. It is well built, and the extras like good coping and waterproof Masonite are a nice touch that will assure it will be around for a while.
