Linda Vista Skatepark Overview

Linda Vista Skatepark is one of the largest and most well-designed parks in San Diego — which is saying a lot coming from the land of skateboarding milk and honey.

Designed by one of the preeminent skatepark companies around, Site Design Group, and built by California Skateparks, the park packs an amazing amount of skateable terrain into 34,000 square feet. The park first opened in 2018.

Linda Vista Skatepark street plaza

The center of the park is a long street plaza that passes under a 100-foot pedestrian bridge. The plaza is a maze of banks, railsides, handrails, hubba ledges, benches, stairs and other street features.

While there are plenty of elements to keep hard-core street fiends busy, this area is big enough and offers enough mellow terrain for beginners to get their footing.

Then there are the bowls. Near the entrance to the park is a fun mini-ramp-sized bowl with steel and concrete coping, hips, corners, extensions, a pump bump, and a spine. Endless lines are possible here.

In the corner of the park opposite the mini-bowl are three deeper bowls. These include a backyard pool style bowl, a full-sized vert bowl, and a long bowl with a full pipe and over vert extensions.
