The Celebration of Oregon's 150th year of statehood has officially ended

Sustain The Spirit

Forest Grove Skatepark

Address: Oregon, Forest Grove, approximately 40 minutes west of Portland

Directions: Take Hwy. 26 west from Portland.  Take the Glencoe Road exit.  This will take you back up and over the overpass.  Turn right at the first stoplight, which is Cornelius-Schefflin Road.  Follow this road to a flashing yellow light.  Take a left on Hwy. 47.  Go for awhile until you see Wilamina – take a right.  Go straight and then take a left on Main Street.  The park is on the left-hand side.

Description: This park has been completely re-done and was finished in March 2004.  It is a street park which resembles a plaza you would skate if you were out street skating.  It has no tranny, except on small "volcano" planters which have trees growing in them.  There are ledges throughout the perimeter of the park, with a five stair/handrail, banks, and step-ups.  

Review: This park is popular with the teenage crowd.  If you want to skate it and avoid the crowds, go during the day when all the grommets are still in school, or you will go nuts there are so many kids.  3.5 OUT OF 5 (FOR STREET)
