La Puenta Skatepark Overview

Officially named Ian Calderon Skatepark, in honor of the state assembly member who secured funding for the project, the La Puenta skatepark is located about 20 miles from downtown Los Angles.

Situated in La Puente City Park, the skate park was designed by Spohn Ranch Skateparks, which is headquartered just two miles away in City of Industry. The park opened in late 2020, after the opening was initially delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The park is modelled after an urban skate plaza, with multiple tiers and arranged in a large square. The plaza has numerous ledges, stairs and manual pads, as well as banks, hand rails, quarterpipes, hips and flat rails.

Two stand out features are a large vert quarterpiple with a window and a elongated pyramid with a steel coping spine along the top.

The park is large enough and offers enough features that beginners and advanced street skaters will find something to ride. Even transition afficianados will find the quarter pipes and hips fun — that window in the big quarterpipe sure looks like it wants someone to carve over it…

If you’re looking for a bowl to skate, however, you’ll need to check out some of LA other skateparks.

Here’s a walk through of the park with pro skater Matt Berger:
