Nothing to go crazy over, but certainly rideable, check out the La Verne skatepark.

Built by the Lawrence R. Moss crew [818.248.5200] and completed in Jan. 1999, this park is 12,550 sq ft of typical Southern California terrain. The park is solid w/ the exception of the coping on the bowl, which is treacherous. The park could be a lot better, but here in SoCAL, we rarely put together parks w/ any real fight in them. For an example of a park w/ some balls, take a look at Oregon's Aumsville. Now *that* is park worth checking out...

There are actually plenty of other options in this neck of the woods - almost all of which are better than this park. You've got San Dimas and Claremont within a half-hour drive of La Verne. There's another Moss park in Glendora which is bigger. Further out you've got Diamond Bar [much better], as well as pay parks like The Brickyard in Redlands and Vans in Ontario. Get out there and kill it!

Directions: Coming from downtown Los Angeles take Interstate 10 east to the 605 north. Take I-605 to Interstate 210 east. Stay on the freeway until it ends and turns into Foothill Boulevard. Take Foothill Blvd. east to D Street and turn right [south]. The park is on the left, at the north end of the Bonita High school parking lot.
