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

Sustain The Spirit

Springfield Skatepark

Springfield, Oregon (skatepark about 2 hrs. to south of Portland)

Directions:  Follow Interstate 5 south to Eugene, head east a couple of miles to the suburb of Springfield.  Follow Main St. into town, take a right (north) on 14th, left on G St.  The skatepark is right across from the town hospital (how convenient!!, great site planning)

Description:  This park is all concrete.  It is all street obstacles, containing various ledges, banks, handrails, etc.  There are a couple small quarters.  A great street park.  There is a ten stair with a full size handrail, a flat rail, lots of gaps and step-ups.

This park is sick for tech skaters to practice their tricks (there is a large flat area for practicing flip tricks).  There is also a loading dock-type obstacle which is about 5 feet high to bust off.

Review: This park is really nice.  It is fun and worthwhile if you are visiting the Eugene area.  4 OUT OF 5

COST: Free
