editor's note:
Cerritos Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Sounds like a snack food...

Can't say we know much about the skateables at Cerritos... the pics were submitted, and based on a bunch of negative rumors about this place, we don't know when we'll ever make it out there.

We DO know the park was built by Purkiss Rose [714.871.3638]. We'd guess it's under 10,000 sq ft [average CA park]. I think the bowl looks crap worthy [boring toilet bowl design]. The features look like they asked skaters' moms what to build and where - they got the elements right, but they don't all make sense where they're at. Check that rail in the middle of that section of trannie... real flow killer.

As it turns out, we rode a couple of local alternatives TODAY [Dec '01]! Bell Gardens seems over-hyped. It's a good park [except for the regulations bullshit], but not as good as some people say. We also rode Fullerton - loved it! It's still a typical "CA" park, but this one is under-hyped [fun!]. On a previous tour we hit Brea - cool street course [corner hits!], crap bowl. All those reviews are coming soon, so if you've got submissions, fire away!

Directions: Coming from Anaheim, take Highway 91 west to the Bloomfield exit and head south. Make a left onto 195th Street [east], and the skatepark is down the road on the right in the park.
