Laytonville Skatepark Overview
The Laytonville Skatepark is a little small in stature, however, compared to other small skateparks that have been designed and constructed by Evergreen Skateparks, the Laytonville Skatepark is special. Some of the other small parks built by Evergreen located in other states could be quite boring for some, but the Laytonville Skatepark packs a big punch in a small package.
The park itself has been a topic of discussion and planning for over 20 years before it finally came to be in late 2020. The main highlight of the Laytonville Skatepark is for sure the oddly-shaped clover leaf bowl. This bowl was designed and built to look like a trippy backyard pool installed at a 1960s California oceanside beach house.
The pool motif was designed down to the three stairs to enter and exit the bowl and the marine blue tile border around the upper edge of the walls. Feel free to flow through the bowl as you please and use the stairs and the coping to practice your grinds, stalls, and hand plants. The bowl itself is quite deep and spacious, however, it is best for only one skater to enter at a time.
Around the outer rim of the pool and the remaining square footage of the circular layout, the skatepark contains a flow park portion that can keep skaters moving for hours at a time. The flow park contains several edges with coping, tons of rolling mounds, and even an abrupt rainbow mound with nice smooth coping.
Although it took more than 20 years to bring a decent skateboard park to the community of Laytonville, the local skaters and the next generation of diehard skaters now have a place to skate in their small tight-knit community.
