Fairfield Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Green Beans Stank

You know what a can of green beans cooking on the stovetop smells like? Random, I know, but that's what it smells like when you live near a brewery. Some kid was like "Yeah, the Budweiser plant is here in Fairfield." I was like, "Uh huh... green beans!"

"Oh yeah - I've been to that 'landfill of a skatepark.' That place is fun if you like graffiti and mullets. Not to mention the kid in the corner dealing smack!"

- Pete Brown: Aug '03

Never, in all the parks I've been to, have I seen such a nasty crew of rag-tag thugs - Fairfield skatepark is a gnarly place to hang out. It was like a cowboy bar just after last call - rowdy, drunk mayhem. These kids were like leaky sewer pipes - I have NEVER heard so much shit-talking in my whole life. Bikers and skaters slinging potty-mouth insults and bustin' 40 oz bottles every chance they got - pretty fun park, overall. Not nice, but quite fun.

Directions: Fairfield is northeast of the Bay area, as you head toward Sacramento. From SF, take the 80 north past Vallejo to Fairfield and exit Travis Blvd. Take Travis east to Pennsylvania. Make a right [south] on Pennsylvania, cross Texas, then take another right [west] on Whoolner. The skatepark is in a park on Whoolner.

^ Perfect "cowards'" bowl at Fairfield -
no vert, low walls, with poppy hits to keep
your blood pumping until you're ready for
something bigger and better...





^ SHITEO: Ohhhh -
Kyle Van Dyke might
have the coolest clip
on the site as of today?!
Blunt kickflip to fakie!!!
As Ringdawg would say,
"Saaah-weeeeet!"





^ SHITEO: James
Higging - so poked out
it hurts...





^ This park feels like
a SoCAL park... not
really designed that
well, but the local
demons give it hell!





^ SHITEO: Rob
Louthian with a
strange nosestall -
and yes, it hurts his
back to do this trick!





^ This park is bigger
than Oprah Winfrey's ass!
This is the non-bowl section...





^ See the funbox "dips"
in the middle? Kooky, huh?
