Paso Robles Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Free
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: Fun off the 101

As you crawl up and down the coast of CA, between LA and SF, Paso Robles is one of many towns you pass thru that have proud little skateparks...

The park at Paso Robles is laid out a little funny - a lot of the guys complained about not being about to hit certain rails - and the walls were a little lumpy, but it's not a bad park.

We got to give it up to the locals at this spot. Despite the 90 degree heat, they killed this park! Big ups to Daniel "the Ruler" Cardinale, Mitch MacArthur, Ed Kolp and Vince Smith.

For a look at some other parks off the 101, check out nearby Templeton and Grover Beach. To the south, Lompoc has a public park and an indoor pay park. Heading north, I hear King City has a park, and Salinas has a nice park too...

Directions: Paso Robles is about 15 miles north of San Luis Obispo. Take Highway 101 north to the Paso Robles Street exit. Make a left onto 13th Street and go across the freeway. Then Make a right onto Riverside Avenue, and another right on 19th Street. The skatepark is on the left in Pioneer Park.
