Exodus Board Shop:

Glendora, CA


editor's note:

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: What kinda name is Finkbiner?

Part of the Inland Empires collection of concrete setups, Glendora earns a pretty solid spot in the rankings.

The park is well built by Lawrence R. Moss Skate Division [818.248.5200]. Despite being a little smaller [9,800 sq ft], this park is a significant step up from the "small-time" nearby park they put together over in La Verne. Some of their other projects include Lompoc and perhaps their best effort, a fine park out in Kingman, AZ.

There are actually plenty of options in this neck of the woods. You've got San Dimas and Claremont within a half-hour drive of Glendora. Further out you've got Diamond Bar, as well as pay parks like The Brickyard in Redlands and Vans in Ontario.

Pads required rule is enforced - we saw two tickets in 30 minutes...

Directions: Coming from L.A. take Interstate 10 east to Interstate 605 north. Take the 605 to interstate 210 east. Exit at Grand Avenue and head north toward the mountains. Turn Right on Foothill [east], then make a left on Wabash Avenue [north]... Make another right [east] on Meda Avenue, followed by another right on Minnesota Avenue. The skatepark is right inside Finkbiner Park.
