Imperial Beach Skatepark Overview

Imperial Beach Skatepark

Imperial Beach Skatepark is located in Imperial Beach Sports Park, just off of Imperial Beach Boulevard, about half a mile from the Pacific Ocean. There used to ramp inside the Sports Park building, but eventually, those were put outside and then dismantled.

The skatepark was designed and built by Grindline Skateparks and opened in 2010. After it opened, the city built a fence around the skatepark due to complaints that skaters were breaking the rules and entering the park outside of designated hours — surprise, surprise.

The highlight of the park is a fun 3-foot-high mini-bowl that has extensions and a clamshell at one end. It can be a little tricky to build up speed, but it’s still a fun little bowl. Dropping in on the extensions or rolling in helps with the speed.

The street section is relatively small and is bookended by quarterpipes and banks, with two sets of stairs with handrails and a hubba. There are also benches, ledges and a small Euro gap.

There’s also a classic mini ramp halfpipe with a wood or masonite type top layer, but it looked in pretty rough shape when I was there.
