Castiac Skatepark Overview
Castiac Skatepark is about a 45-minute drive north of downtown Los Angeles, and is part of the Castiac Regional Sports Complex. Designed and built by Spohn Ranch Skateparks, Castiac Skatepark opened in 2019, and reportedly cost around $1.3 million.
When you enter the skatepark from the parking log, you’re greeted by a three-pronged fork of concrete routes that bring you into the skate terrain.
Unlike many skate plazas where the features are all connected, this park is designed as a sort of labyrinth of paths around islands of planters with the skatable elements arranged along the paths.
Features include A-frames and banks, with rails and hubbas, flat rails, quarterpipes with hips, quarterpipes with curved lips for carving corners, benches, manual pads, and more.
Castaic Skatepark has shade structures with benches and bathrooms are available in the sports center building nearby.
The park includes a large sculpture by local artists Michael Parker and Todd Ciborowski, as part of a collaboration with the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
Castaic is a small unincorporated town just off the Interstate 5 as you head north out of Los Angeles. It’s a great place to stop for a skate break as you head into the Sierras or to San Francisco.
Castaic Skatepark is one of several northern Los Angeles county skateparks built in recent years, along with Jane Reynolds Skatepark, in Lancaster, and George Lane Skatepark, in Quartz Hill.
