The Park

Lakeside Skatepark was opened in 2014 as part of Lindo Lake Community Park right in the center of Lakeside, near the historic downtown area.

The park was designed by Stantec, a skatepark design-build firm responsible for several of San Diego’s larger (and well done) skatepark projects, including the parks in Carlsbad (Alga Norte) and Encinitas (Poods).

Unlike some skateparks, which are tucked away on the outskirts of towns, Lakeside Skatepark takes up a premium location right next to scenic Lake Lindo in the heart of town.

The street plaza takes up most of the space. The perimeter of the plaza is defined by long quarter pipes and banks with steel coping or concrete edges. Curved corners and hips wait to be carved or boost ollies.

The center of the plaza is anchored by a funbox with banks and long ledges with (slick) steel edges.

The plaza has flat rails, manual boxes, hubbas, a pump bump, and a neat gap feature.

Lakeside Skatepark bowl

The bowl in Lakeside Skatepark has three lobes, somewhere between a peanut and a clover shape.

One section has steps to carve over if you dare. While I didn’t measure it, I’m guessing it’s around 9-feet deep in the deep end.

Here’s a video of a guy skating the street plaza:
