Portland Skatepark

* Outdoor: 'Crete
* Pay: $5 for all day
* Trannie / Street
* Rating: "Little Punks"

"Low and behold, the town of Portland TX has just built a new outdoor concrete park."

"Real smooth surface and lots of fun. They just changed the rules and all that is required is a helmet. The fee to skate is only $5.00 for all day."

We asked about the cracks you can see in the photos...

"The cracks are not bad at all... the little punks littering is the problem. Other than that, its real smooth."

- Sam Crawford: May '03

Directions: Portland is NE of Corpus Christi TX. We hear the address to the skatepark is 2002 Billy G. Webb Dr, you can't look it up on the web, though - that street is probably too new. We called the cops in Portland [makin' them work for US for once], they said head north on route 181, you'll pass the Wildcat exit, next exit will be Buddy Ganem, exit there. That'll take you to some kind of an access rd. Look for the Community Center... skatepark is supposed to be close to there.
